I am seriously thinking of buying one of these to aid cleaning clock movements. The only thing stopping me is the cost of the cleaning fluid they recommend. Is there any domestic cleaner I could use which would do a reasonable job. As long as its safe , which means petrol is out. I did try leaving my movement soaking in white spirit overnight once, this was a disaster as it took me forever to remove the white marks it left on the brass. Soapy water removed some of the tarnish , but any other liquid I could try.
