    Two different needs, the choke tubes probably have plastic build up with some black soot covering it, acetone is the stuff for that, use in a ventilated area and don't get it on the stock.

    Carbon is the toughest to get off. If I can get the part in my bead blaster that's the way I do it. If not soak it in Hoppes overnight and then elbow grease. There are products called carbon blasters but I don't find them to work any better than good ole Hoppes.
