youve got to be careful what you clean brake parts in so you dont leave behind any residue, brake fluid mixed with other riff raff can get messy.

To get the piston out nothing works better than compressed air, little sirt into the cylinder from the line nut and itll pop out of there.

Soaking wise, petrol or clr will do the trick
