    There's about as many ways to clean one as Carter has Little Liver Pills and most of them will work. Soapy hot water is fine. The main thing to remember is no petroleum based lubes(ie gun oil) in the bore. It's fine in the lock but petro lubes and bp fouling do not mix well. It will make an easy job hard. Always use a vegetable based lube in the bore. Bore Butter or olive oil will work. There's several different ones on the market. Some synthetics will work ok.
