What and how does everyone go about cleaning and lubing up their active protection?

PS

No one likes sticky cams! I recently had a cam seize up on me, so I called metolius for advice and this is what they said:

Apply hot, soapy water and scrub between the lobes thouroughly with a toothbrush. Rinse REALLY well (get all the soap out), and then dry it REALLY well (it's ok to use a blow dryer). If whatever was blocking it up seems to be removed, then add a drop or two of cam lube or equivalent, and you should be good (that is, it worked for me).

Good luck

Props to my home state show

I use Q-Tips to help clean all of the gunk off of the springs with cam lube. Works great.

It's always a party.

A good cleaning (toothbrush, hot soapy water), heavy rinse in very hot water. Then some elmer's slide-all and tweak the trigger wires with a pair of pliers.

I use (sparingly) a nice teflon based lubricant spray meant for bicycle cables and bushings/chains. Wipe off any excess. Works great on sticky biner gates too. I happen to use this one.
