    Carb cleaner for bearings takes everything out of them, plus for regular wash down a nice soft warm water spray then a small spray of penn Rod and reel cleaner then another Luke warm water spray to remove too much cleaner. Encored with a nice soft towel to dry and wipe the reel. Also a little drop of Shimano oil for the line roller and the handle and drags loosened and put away till next time. Never had any problem and my reels always look and perform like new

    Would an ultrasonic cleaner work?

    I soak my bearings overnight in TSI 301. Saves a lot of trouble.
