Once I discovered that I could clean my blades with DAWN DISH WASHING FLUID I put away all that caustic chemical stuff forever.

Warm water and soaking time are the key factors here. After soaking in the sink, bucket,etc. four a couple of hours, take an OLD toothbrush and carefully scrub the teeth on the blade. It comes right off, especially if you haven’t let the blade sit with the pitch forever.

And the very bet part is that you don’t have to use a soap with Fluoride..;-)

Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Always keep the blades from making contact with your sink (steel, ceramic, etc) for obvious reasons. Putting a folded towel in the bottom makes a lot of sense.
