So here are some pics of before and after using simple green as the cleaner. Also I am using 2.5 liter US from harbor freight.
Filled water up half way, put 5 cap full of simple green concentrate into US, just stirring as cleaning is going. Bad thing is I am doing a cycle of 3 mins. When I did the 1 min 30 sec cycle did not get them as clean. Also using heat but not sure what the temp is as there is no read out for it.
Sorry in advance for the poor lighting. If you look closely the individual chips are pretty clean, as im taking them out of the hot water clean. Just wiping them down real quick with a soft terry cloth and laying on towel to dry.

Fyi I am using the vevor 6L filled up with about 5 capfulls. Not saying what is right or wrong just making notes.
Oh yeah I'm just messing around it with it, I just dumped and refilled and put 2 caps full in. Going to see how this works

I am noticing some color fading as well, I just oiled a barrel so I will be able to compare the difference.

I'm not particularly worried about colour fade because oiling can cure that. I'm worried about actual surface reaction/damage.
This is what happened when I put a CPC chip in the US.
1st Pic- New

I don't feel too bad about this, then, as I would likely keep my cleaning cycle to 2 minutes for a minority of my ASMs that need cleaning, and 60-90 seconds for the majority. I almost always oil my chips afterward, so that should bring back the colour after cleaning and drying.

You mentioned 5 capfuls of Simple Green All-Purpose. How much volume was that diluted in? Somewhere between 4-8 cups/1-2L?

Interested to know the mixture as well. I will do a test on some horseshu mold Binion Horseshoe's. Probably in a week or so.

The US holds 2.5 liters, when I put the CPC chip in i had 3 to 4 cap fulls of the simple green concentrate with about 1.5 liters of water. When I was cleaning more dirty paulsons I had 5 cap full.
I was actually noticing that the heat was fading the color. I started messing around with no heat and longer cleaning times and the fading wasn't hardly there.

And don't forget i was using a less expensive US, that i bought from Harbor Freight. If you have a better US these mixtures and times may be different as well.
