I have big boxes full of propellers that I'd like to clean, but it's very time consuming. Does anyone know of a product that I can soak them clean with? Thanks.

A wet sponge or cloth with a dash of cleaner, should not take more than 10 seconds to clean each one. You could have cleaned a few in the time it took to ask this silly question.
Don’t be so harsh it may seem a silly question,but it remains a legitimate question.

Spray the props with car bug spray. These products dissolve bug splatter quickly. I even use it to soften tree sap from my chainsaws. I use a little 'Pledge' furniture polish spray on my props and on the body shell of my P4 to finish off. It gives a nice shine and a slick surface that resists bug splatter sticking too bad on your next flights.

All the best, Martin

Warm soapy water works for me... If that does not take off the dirt
and grime then the props may have something on them to weaken
them. I wouldn't fly my drones with those.

Dirt and grime? Please explain how that stuff would get on a prop. I've used the same set of props for many dozens of flights and they are still clean and white.
