Well Heatshrinkless makes it harder, as you'd have to dunk up to the connector in the water :/coud be done? Perhaps hanging them by wire - with a fishing wire going across the bowl and sitting either side of the wires but supporting the connector..?
that's a difficult description, when I can I'll sketch a picture smile.gif

You could just tape the terminals right above the water onto the bowl with a piece of tape.

I'm leaning towards wiping them down with pure rubbing alcohol and a clean clothe.

Cigarette tar needs more than just soapy water.

Five parts water
One part spirit vinegar
Squirt of non-biological washing-up liquid

Soaking won't help much either. You need to scrub the sleeving using a soft cloth and rinse the cloth frequently so that you aren't just rubbing the tar back on to the sleeve.
