A Tiny Parts Washer

Most of my machining is fairly small in size, so I keep this little fake Tupperware container partially full of kerosene or mineral spirits to wash off the little parts I work on:

Jammed about half an inch from the bottom there's a piece of acrylic with a bunch of holes drilled so the chips accumulate under there:


I find that I'm using less solvent now that I have that little trap to keep from recirculating the stuff I'm trying to wash off.
