Default How do you clean sizing wax from your lubing bin/tray?

I have a bunch of bins (like the Dillon ones for the XL 650, only longer) I use for lubing cases, and I typically wash them with really hot water and a brush when I notice they start collecting dust on the wax (cob, natural), or other residue.

What is the method you all use? (99% isopropyl alcohol on a rag/in a bucket?)

Thanks,

Simple green works or any degreaser. Hoppes works well to. Don't use carb/choke cleaner. It will destroy the plastic.

Dishwasher. Or warm water with soap + sponge.

The bin I am using is pretty thin, and tends to get "drooping" side sides with hot water, so I was looking for options.

Thanks for the input!

Default My lube tray...

...get washed in warm to hot soapy water along with the brass. The brass is then dried and re/tumbled. I check for case failure and media left just before priming.
