What do you use "barings" in? Most racers use "bearings" You can clean them with motor spray, lighter fluid, just about anything. Re-lube them with thin oil like Zubak's or Finish Line oil. Both are very good. Sometimes it is better to replace them too.

Default Let em soak

You should let em soak in 2-stroke lawnmower fuel or nitro fuel give em i day i always do, then when your down clean em out i like to air blow them gently making sure you dont spin the bearing alot when its got no lube on it. THen i soak em up in trinity royal oil. and give them a drop or 2 after every meet.

I've found electric motor spray to be the best to clean them. Leaves not residue, and the high pressure blast through the small plastic bit from the can gets the crap out of the bearings. A quick dousing with Trinity Royal oil, and they are as good as new.
