I clean my bushing reels with warm water, 1 drop of Ivory dish soap, a toothbrush, and a qtip. Scrub all parts of the reel with the warm soapy water throughly, then rinse really good. Douse a qtip in warm water and shove it up the shaft that the pin goes into (sounds a little xxx rated), you may have to use a couple qtips until its clean but its well worth it. Put a drop of Hoppe's #9 gun lube on all moving parts and she'll spin like a top forever.
