Take off the grips and stick it in the washing machine. Sounds silly but it works :D

dude tied up his dirty .45 acp cases in a pillow case and tossed the whole thing into his wife's washing machine. Pretty soon the bag broke and cases were crashing around all over the tub. don't know if he every got them all out or not.
