Also use Lestoil as this was recommended here on FWW. It works well on carbide toothed blades as well. I tried Simple Green & it worked well too, but was advised that it had negative affects on carbide (???). So, rather than chance a problem, I went back to Lestoil. I use the lid from a 5 gal bucket (suggested by Bob) to place the saw blade in & rest in the Lestoil for a few minutes. Then rinse in hot water with a soft brush. I usually do several blades at a time (one at a time to avoid damage to the carbide teeth) reusing the same Lestoil in the lid. Works well. Try it, you'll like it!
