When I shot a lot of BP from revolvers, I'd remove grip panels, then clean them in the sink with hot water, stiff toothbrush and stiff nylon bore brush for cylinders/barrels. I'd scrub for sevreal minutes. Afterwards they went outside and were thouroughly hosed off with brake parts cleaner. This gets all water residue out of all the nooks and crannies (it also removes all oil). Barrels were then cleaned with hoppes or clp on patches and gun re-lubed and wiped with clp and reassembled. I live in a very humid area but never had any problems with corrosion on blued & case hardened guns.
