    It's likely, but if they're not listing all the specs find another seller.

    Would a straight Vodka mix give me better results than water with an additive?
    No I'm not taking the piss, this is a serious question.
    Always used to soak and clean my aty's in the early days in Vodka and wondering if anyone's gone there with Ultrasonics

    I've used vodka. I've seen everything from 1 capful to 100% vodka as a cleaning solution, but it gets expensive fast.

    Since I have ready access to it I've been using commercial espresso clean with good results.
    A couple of teaspoons in hot water in the ultrasonic for 5-15 minutes works a treat, since
    it's designed to act as a gentle degreaser. A tub is cheap and will last for ages.

    A tip to make your life easier, get a roll of Chux and a pack of rubber bands.

    Cut a chux up into about A5 size (which is 1/2 an A4) and put your disassembled atty parts into it.
    Then wrap up the lot up with a rubber band and swish it around in the cleaner. Do a ultrasonic run,
    then take out and rinse thoroughly.

    Use vinegar and drink the vodka. Waste of vodka IMO.

    Actually - has anyone tried cleaning juice bottles? plastic ones specifically?
    I have a stack of empties and would like to re-use them, but have never wanted to wash them with detergent in case it affects the flavor....

    Never had any problems myself. Just give them a good rinse afterwards then let them dry in a rack
