I use a squirt of dishwashing liquid in my steel-pins tumbler. I buy a big bottle of it at Dollar Tree. I really like how a pins tumbler gets the primer pockets clean. I guess the pins also get inside the case, cleaning in there too. The $170 or so I paid for my Frankford Arsenal example was some of the best money related to firearms I've ever spent. Beats the ultra-sonic thing I had before the tumbler all to helsinki.

Why make something simple complicated? I don't clean a large amount of BP brass at a time so my method is a little dish washing soap, whatever flavor my wife is using, and hot water in a plastic container with a lid. Dump the brass in, shake the heck out of it, let set for a bit, shake the heck out of it again and pour the whole thing into a strainer basket in the kitchen sink. Rinse the brass in hot water and let dry. Wash out the sink with hot water to prevent marital flare-ups. Done.
