I,ve found that spraying carburator cleaner (1/1) on them is the easiest way to get em clean.... but havent tried ultrasonic things hehehe...... Tell me if it's worth buying one...

Don't use an ultrasonic cleaner for bearings, you will end up pitting the races that the bearings run on and wreck the bearing.

Spray motor cleaner, high pressure air and re-lube is what I do.

Directly for Acer bearings. Buy RPM bearing blaster and spray with carb cleaner or electronic cleaner. let dry relube with SIN. (acer brand bearing oil). The bearing blaster works awesome. It is $9 for rpm, 9 for oil.
