I've mentioned it in some earlier threads, but many times I've pulled the grips/stock off of a firearm and put it in the shower.
Turn the shower on HOT, get an old coat hanger and use it to hold the gun. Stand on a stepstool and stay outside of the shower but hold the gun over the shower door right in the stream of hot water. Rotate the gun in the stream, the longer you keep it in the stream the better. Remove wet gun from the shower, grab with an old towel, shake, rotate and shake some more. The heat will evaporate most of the water. Lube and reassemble clean gun.
Do not attempt this while wife is in the shower.

Thank you all for the comments! Been a pretty enlightening thread. The muzzle loader comment from, Hogdaddy, is right on. Hot water and Dawn is the prefered method. Sounds odd but he is right.
Perhaps the dishwasher method is, afterall, not that bad!
I have to wonder though now how an ultrasonic tank and Hopps #9 would do? Or an ultrasonic cleaner and some other less harmfull cleaner would work? Suppose an ultrasonic tank would loosesn screws?
I have a small 8"x8" tank for cleaning electromechanical components used in industrial manufacturing equipment (mills, lathes and gantry plasma torches).
Interesting thread! And thanks, all.
