I want to clean up these porcelain switches that I'm restoring. Anyone have any suggestions on how to do it?

Don't have an ultrasonic cleaner which would be great! Think I"ll try the purple power method.
Thanks for the link Dave.

This is how they look after soaking in Purple Power. One came out really good the other not so much but I'll go with it.

Nice to see that there are several ways to clean porcelain and come up with almost the same results.  :cool:
