Sonic Cleaning a Firearm

I purchased some gun cleaner designed to be used in a sonic cleaner. I have not tried it yet. Has anyone in this community tried that technique? Any pointers you can give me if I choose to clean my guns that way? I am planning to clean only the slide and not the frame.

There’s a youtube video of a guy cleaning an HK VP9 with an ultrasonic cleaner he bought at Harbor Freight. I’ve thought about getting one, just for a once a year deep clean to get into all the areas I can’t get to. He used just enough liquid to get to the inner works of the frame and also put the slide in to get to the striker, etc. The color change of the fluid afterwards was pretty impressive.

It’s important to blow everything out afterwards with compressed air or the air in a can of you don’t have that, then lube as it will be bone dry.
