Briley's makes a product called "Strip Tease" it is pretty good. it comes in a plasic jar. Just remove lid, put chokes in jar, let them set for a while, remove and pretty much wipe off the build up. Other than that the only other product I have used is Gun Scrubber from Birchwood Casey it is pretty good as long as you have a brush you can scrub the choke out with.
I assume you're concerned with the wad build-up problem near the choke base? Anyway, a thread on this forum a year or so ago suggested soaking in acetone over night which works very well. You don't need to do it that often. A qt of the stuff is about 5.00 which should last you a long time.
This is what I do: I take a pint of gas from the can I keep for my mower. I soak the chokes in a glass jar with a screw on lid overnight and hit them with a brush the next day. Then I run the dirty gasoline thru three layers of paper towels and put the gas back in the can. Chokes are clean, mower runs.
No exotic crap to dispose of.
You can roll and smoke the used paper towels if you are man enough.
Slip 2000 works great for me. It is water based, so it can be used indoors with out fumes. I soak my Briley chokes for about an hour, after shooting only two events with new STSs, and I can see big flakes of plastic. Look at the net slip2000.com The starter kit comes with jar and hangers.
I am also a big fan of Slip 2000. I bought a gallon and shared it with friends. I drop my choke tubes in and just run a brush throuth them when I get home from the range, 15 to 20 minutes in usually fine.
I normally clean them in-the-bore when I clean the barrel. If I have extras to clean I wet them with powder solvent and wait a while. I then use a bore brush to loosen the crud and a paper towel to remove it.
I bought some used chokes that had sat a while and were pretty cruddy. I soaked them with solvent and let them set. I then used an old brush wrapped with 4o steel wool. I chucked up a section of old cleaning rod and the wrapped brush in a cordless drill. A few seconds is all it took to remove ALL of the fouling! Keep the brush wet with solvent while doing this. Power tools rule!!!
Mix equal parts of alchol, hydrogen peroxide, murphys oil soap.
stick old rag tightly in tube soak rags for 20 min. push out rags and brush clean, works for me. If you store this stuff keep in
dark bottle to keep the peroxide active.
