Reel wash

I want to clean up my old Ambassadeur reel. What would be a good solution
to soak it in and brush it clean?

Everclear!

Kerosene, with maybe a touch of oil.

Boy, Howdy! I ran across some hikers in the Rockies who shared their iced tea with Everclear around the campfire. Only headache I had worse than that was the time I got driven up under a semi trailer.

It must have been the tea...
I used to clean my reels with Q-tips and 91% alcohol (or Everclear) and re-lube. Now I drop them off at "The Rodmakers Shop" and they clean, lube and adjust for $10. They have parts there if need be and they are like new. I get three years on my 2 "Pinnacle Deadbolts" until the bails start hanging up and the drags get jerky.

I would think kerosone would ruin the drag discs.

I've always used warm water, dish soap, and a toothbrush. Works fine.
