I may try this one day, but for me, clear dish soap, toothbrush, and warm water does the trick!

Wow this is an amazing tutorial for a newbie like me, and the tools and machines are not expensive as I was able to find a second hand ultrasonic machine similar to the one in the video. Super excited to try it on my yakama lot!

Here’s what I have going today. About 650 crystal park chips to go through.

Soak for about 30 mins in warm water and dawn

Run about 2 mins through the ultrasonic with 2 tablespoon TSP and 1 tablespoon dawn. Comes out nice and clean

In the thread from other crystal park owners, they mentioned that dawn helped.

I gave it a try and it did take a little longer to clean, but then again I was doing larger amounts of chips per batch. Seemed to work fine.

Last time I had to clean chips was when I got my Horseshoe Cincy set and those were some of the most filthy chips I've ever had.

Yeah, the 30 minute soak and Dawn in the Ultrasonic sound counter productive. I'm leery of soaking chips that long... water getting under inlays etc. Generally the dirtiest RHC chips with the original mixture of TSP are in the ultrasonic for 30 seconds... no pre-soak... 40 chips at a time.

Decided to video document my first attempt at Ski_Ex5's Ultrasonic Cleaning Method. Since it was my first go, it certainly wasn't perfect.

I sincerely hope this helps in tandem with the original documented instructions. I sincerely appreciate Ski_Ex5's OP and the helpful contributed info from Tommy and liftapint.

*Warning* - I am born and raised in Northern California so anticipate a lot of "hella" "super awesome" "totally" and a potential "dude".

That's a cool process. I like it to the point that I will purchase one unit to begin a massive clean up. Thanks for the video
