I do.  I've used the standard cleaner mix, set it to run at max time 3x... really didn't do much.
but I haven't tried using LA in it.
I hear good things about that method.

A good variety. Chaotic red and ultra marine blue were awful. Though wolf grey didn’t go much better

Bloody hell, you weren't kidding about how tough AP red was. Boiled in simple green for an hour and it's still sticking to an AGOAC beamer and wolverine.

edit - Got enough off with a toothbrush that a second hot bath did the job. Still stupidly tough - which I suppose means it's good primer.

Has anyone used this stuff on the new plastic minis? I don’t want to accidentally melt them

See post above yours. I literally boiled them in simple green, and the heat just distorted the bases a tiny bit (I think they're a different plastic)

Maybe I got lucky, but they don't seem damaged to me.

RIP reading comprehension.

Thanks.
