The dishwasher dries with heat at the end of the cycle, which can harden any gum that didn’t come off in the cleaning process….prolly not recommended for brazing either. Freud recommends a kerosene soak for blades that are badly gummed….it’s pH neutral and won’t hurt carbide or brazing. Once clean, almost any household spray cleaner (409, LA’s Totally Awesome, Fantastic, Greased Lightnin, Simple Green, citrus cleaners like Goo Gone, etc., all work well… I set the blade in the cover from a 5 gallon pail, spray both sides, brush, rinse, and hand dry… works really well.
