I buy "Mean Green" by the gallon at the dollar store and put the blade in a old round 12" cake pan the wife dobated a few years ago and put about 1/4" of "Mean Green" in the pan. The "Mean Green" does not require much soaking time, a couple of minutes then hit it with the brass brush from Harbor Freight and Presto a clean blade.
my workshop (garage) was starting to smell odd after cutting wood, and wifey asked id something was burning in the garage. Si it was time to clean the table saw blade. The blade had a lot more resin/gum/whatever on it than I had realized. I used a commercial cleaner, spray on, brief soak, scrub with brass bristled brush, wipe off, wash under hot water. Good as new
