[AMRadio] Need suggestions on cleaning roller inductors.

People have had good results putting big items such as rotary inducrtors and
bread-slicer capacitors into a dishwasher, and using regular dishwasher
detergent.  But don't do this with iron stuff like DC-power inductors and
power transformers!!!  Or tubes, either... the thrashing can be violent and
might break the filaments, if not the glass.  Clean tubes gently by hand
with very mild soap or something.
