After reading about the Tek bath process, I decided to try out a modified method. I had about 50 of the TM500 series plugins, and about half of them needed a bath. So I used a diluted pine-sol cleaner in warm water, a soft bristled paint brush, and I inverted each module so that it was facing down, to minimize cleaner running inside the unit.
Holding it over a pan full of the cleaner, I simply brushed / scrubbed the front panel with the soapy brush, then did the same with clean water.
To dry, I put them in a very low oven, like 150F, for an hour or so.
I think that’s a safe way to clean the front panel at least.

My one washing experience according to the ServiceScope recipe ended in near disaster.
