Blackpowder residue melts in hot water with soap, nothing to it as long as you hit it when it is fresh. Wait a day or two and it can be a fight. Use smokeless powder solvent and it turns to tar.

I have a cheap $10 Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner, I strip cylinder and put anything that fits in there with hot soapy water and let it run while I clean the rest of it. Nipples, cylinder and cylinder pin (for my Remington) are well on their way to being clean by the time I get back to it.
