How to clean (old) LEGO the best way?

The best way to clean LEGO is to put the parts loose in lots of handwarm water with a little washing powder. Do not use liquid washing soap because it keeps sticking to the parts. Stirr a few times but not too many and let it stay for a few hours, or a night long. Wash off with handwarm or cold water and dry on a towel.

Washing in the machine might seem easy but is not a good idea. Because of the many turns of the machine, the parts tubmle against each other and cause fine scratches. The quality and beutiness of the parts are diminishing rapidly.
