I used Windex as well as Windshield Washer fluid to clean with , both work good.

Like stated above, there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

As for Turpentine, I read on another Forum that the BPCR Guys use it to de lead the barrel.

Put a cork in the muzzle end , stand on the muzzle end.

Fill bore with Turpentine , let stand overnight .

Next day remove cork and drain , dry and oil.

I’m told the lead from the bore will be on the cork.

I have not tried this however , maybe someone who has will chime in.
Good Luck & Good Shootin'

I use water with some ivory soap shavings. A quart of water and 3 tablespoons of soap shavings and let it set overnight to dissolve the soap. I plug the nipple with a toothpick, pour some solution in and let it set for a few minutes, them pump a patch around, rinse with plain water, dry and oil. My barrel is always sparkly, shiny clean

Fels Naptha or Murphy's and water work well too.
