    I bought one of those Ultra-sonic cleaners from Maplins last year but did not get any good results.
    What is the secret, what liquid is best to use, I tried soda, squeezy liquid and bio washing powder and the cases came out not much different.

    I half fill mine with warm water put in a teaspoon of cream of tartar powder, I only ever put in ten or twelve cases, run it for three ,three minute cycles, brass comes out shiny. JC.

    ultrasonic cleaner

    I use one of these at work with the chemical liquid never thought of it for cleaning cases would the residue from the liquid cause any problems with the powder or ignition temperatures?
    otherwise seems a good way to start cleaning my brass.

    You might try using citric acid crystals, tablespoon in a pint of water, no smell at all, and very effective even without an U/T machine .

    You can get the citric acid crystals in Boots or any homebrew shop btw.

    Just rinse off in warm soapy water , and then clear water to avoid any possible contamination which I believe is harmless anyway .
