Pine Sol to Clean Carburetors

I have a bunch of carburetor parts to clean and recently read that Pine-Sol did a great job. So I tested it. Looking at the ingredients, I see this stuff is 1.75% glycolic acid. It did go right through my nitrile gloves and I had to switch to some heavy duty ones. And I did wear my safety glasses.
These parts have been soaked about 30 minutes, lightly scrubbed with a toothbrush and wiped off and then soaked for another 30 minutes. Then another light going over with a toothbrush and rinse with cold water. The part on the left is before cleaning, on the right is after.

Wow! Pretty good.
