Cleaning the Piston

Well I took apart the engine to get rid of all that water, and I was wondering, what is the best cleaner to use to clean the piston. I'm soaking some other parts right now in Simple Green. Any other suggestions??

I use wd 40, fine bristle pad, and a clot. make sure you get all fibers

nondiluted Purple Power works well while scrubbing with steel wool, but be sure to get all of the particles of it out of the ring gaps.

Go to your neighborhood Ford dealership and ask for their engine cleaner, that goes in the carb. I posted about this stuff a while ago, and think I even put up a part number. The dealership should either have it as a pour- can or a spray. IT EATS ALL THE CARBON! It should leave everything sparkling clean. Use it outside.
