    Reminds me of the scene from the movie "Stop or my mom will shoot!" with Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty. Sly comes home one day to find his mother has washed his guns in the sink and scrubbed the blueing off!

    The heat inside a dishwasher from the heated water is not sufficient to damage any parts of a Glock. I would however suggest turning off the heated drying option, and make sure that the gun cannot fall against the heating element. Several reported fires have actually been the smell of burning plastic from a utensil falling against the heating element of a dishwasher. Other firefighters will back me up on this.

    I was told by a fellow I went to police academy with that Simple Green is the best method for cleaning a gun. disassemble, scrub with Simple Green, and pour boiling water over it to rinse. The water leaves the gun as vapor, and from there, lube and reassemble. Don't know if it works or not, but several people since have said it does. Me, I like cleaning my guns.

    We used a hose and hot war to clean our artillery piece, followed by a good wipe down and oil. For an SKS hotwater is a great way to clean the gas system.

    I don't know what the big deal is on cleaning your guns in a dishwasher. That's how I clean my neighbors cat after it's crapped in my flower garden.

    So for the sake of this thread I have decided to give it a whirl...





    The fitment of the pistol is great, but the bullets dont fit well in the utensil compartment.
    I will have to call GE customer service about this.


    WAIT! at what temp and dry setting do the rounds explode?
