Mild dish detergent

by electrichorologist


Mild liquid dish and hand soaps, and liquid laundary detergents mixed in enough distilled water to make a very weak soap solution will do a good job of cleaning the movement; adding a cupful of household ammonia to a pint of soap solution will brighten the movement. The solution is followed by a clear water rinse, a rinse in rubbing alcohol, and a final rinse in hairspring cleaner. The movement is dried in a heated chamber. Quartz watches are cleaned in alcohol.
