Good Morning All,

I think I may well have stumbled upon yet another application for the good ol' 
automatic dishwasher in the kitchen...CLEANING BLACK, WRINKLE-FINISHED 

Specifically in my instance, the absolute spic & span cleaning of an old, 
SEALED, 10-henry filter choke. I agonized over how I might best clean this 
thing (wrinkle finishes drive me nuts!), when it dawned on me: why not just put 
it inside the dishwasher with the next load & see what might happen...?

VOILA! It came out absolutely SPOTLESS! I made sure I pulled it out just before 
the washer went into the heat/dry cycle, though, for fear of the thing either 
(A) exploding (it IS a sealed unit), or, (B) cracking the porcelain insulators 
surrounding the two electrical terminals...
