Default Cleaning Out The Crud

Just took a look at my old Lyman 450 Lube/sizer, and ordered some missing parts. Now I have to get rid of that 25 year old lube that was left in it. Anybody got some ideas on the best way of cleaning this? It appears to be Lyman graphite lube.
For cleaning guns, anyone got opinions on what's the best cleaner for lead, for copper, or for moly? I have been using Hoppe's #9 for years. I have an old Outers cleaning kit, so I guess I have used their solvent, and I think I remember using a Savage solvent many years ago. Now there is such a variety of stuff, I would like to get some feedback. How about the foaming bore cleaners - good or bad?

Thanks for your help,
