Hey... I'm in the same boat. I have what's called paralysis by analysis.
Every-time I hear someone swear by one, another person says it sucks and will leave residue etc..
I'm particularly interested in cleaning copper, if that matters.
Maybe use whatever and then a final clean with alcohol to clear any remaining residue?
If it loose copper parts and connections-I soaked my Cardas binding speaker terminals (solid copper) in a bowl of white vinegar .It removed all of the discoloration and looks good as new. Brass,too. Got the info off of Youtube. No side effects. Cheap.
