Easier/better ways to clean crank and case?

After spending too many hours cleaning cases and cranks on a couple of engines, I am wondering how everyone else is cleaning theirs. My routine:

Case: dunk and marinate in solvent. Final clean with many cans of carb cleaner, 100's of Q tips, compressed air, alcohol.

Crank: after machine shop polishing, spend hours cleaning out polishing gunk from oil plugs with many cans of carb cleaner, 100's of Q tips, compressed air, alcohol.

I don't stop until the swabs come perfectly clean, including removing all oil stains in case.

Easier/better ways??
