If you use the snaiflush make sure you rinse your traps completely after you boil them in it. Saniflush is very corrosive. You would be better off just boiling and rinsing your traps in good clean water. Worm
I've had pretty good luck using some old milk crates to put a dozen traps in each, then load up as many as my pickup will hold and I make a trip down to the local coin op car wash. The crates keep the traps contained under the high pressure hose force, and our local operation has heated water with a decent soap and rinse time for your quarters. I don't know if its perfect, but it gets every bit of caked on dirt and grime off.
I use speed dip now on most of my traps, and unless I get a trap really shined up from a **** I haven't had much rust issues at all since switching to the speed dip.
I just don't have the facilities set up here for boiling a big batch of traps anymore, so this method works for me.
I speed dip also, but I still boil them. I boil in plain water. Since there is no issue with wax I see no reason for the sani flush; just want the heat and agitation from the boilng to get the crud off.
This turkey frying craz has made cheap burners widely available. I saw one the other day that had a ring around the top to prevent the pot from sliding off...this would be a big plus for those that wax.
