Here is a trick that I have used for quite some time in cleaning a Carb without any harsh chemicals.
Its preferred that you do this outside or at least your other half will probably request it.
After taking the carb apart and removing all rubber seals and any other rubber part you can do this to clean(boil) the carb to the cleanest you have ever seen.
Place a old pan that it about half way full of vinegar (White Vinegar) on a grill or if you are doing this inside on the stove top.
Get the vinegar up to boiling and then dump the carb and if you want the jets into the boiling vinegar. Let it boil for about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Pull it out and let it cool down, use either a compressor or canned air and blow through all the ports to remove any excess liquid left behind. You have now boiled you carb and it is cleaner than it has been in a long time.
Second note if you want to tint any of your metal parts you can also add a few drops of food coloring of your favorite color and boil your bolts or metal parts for the same time. When the parts cool down you will see they are slightly tinted to the color you chose.
The vinegar can be dumped in the yard or down the drain and it will not harm the enviroment.
