Washing machines get grease, blood and... Well... Knuckle children out of things really well. Just add powder residue to the list of A-OK :D

I've intentionally washed brass in the washing machine. Using those mesh zippered bags. About 100 cases per. They were washed separately, or maybe with some soiled shop towels. Works well; I dry the brass on reject cookie sheet pans, not in the clothes dryer. I haven't used this technique lately. Depending on details, my brass may be cleaned in different ways. If it's not too dirty or oily, these days I have a couple of tumblers that I use. If the brass is tarnished, coked, carboned up or oily, I will chemically wash it in Iosso liquid case cleaner, then rinse thoroughly. When I clean in Iosso, if it's rifle brass I decap. The washing machine caper, the occasions I've done that it was usually when I had quantities of some common pistol caliber. I haven't gone into steel pins or ultrasonic methods. Yet.
