-Carburetor cleaner is not just for cleaning carbs and their parts. \\ +
-A gallon of carburetor cleaner is very useful in cleaning most any parts, bolts and other metals and soaking stuck gaskets. \\ +
-There is a metal bucket with a handle inside so you can put in small parts and remove them with the handle easily without loosing any. \\ +
-Insert small parts, bolts, wrenches or whatever you need to clean, close the lid and let them soak. \\ +
-Later, open the lid, remove the small bucket inside by the handle, set the bucket on the ground and wash the parts cleaner off with a water hose. \\ +
-Let them air dry and most, if not all of the grease/​grime should be gone. \\ +
-You may have to re-soak heavy grimed parts or use a wire brush to break grime hardened areas before soaking again. \\ +

-For soaking stuck gaskets between mated parts to loosen them, \\ +
-Depending on how old or how '​stuck'​ the parts are, soaking for a couple hours may help to separate the old gasket in between. \\ +
-Make sure to remove any rubber or plastic parts before soaking. \\ +
-Also check the label for safety precautions. \\ +
-Parts that have been sitting for years may have to be soaked for about 24 hours. \\ +
