Another option some people use is to take a plastic jar with a screw on cap like a peanutbutter jar and put the clad in there with some water and vinegar and throw it in the trunk of your car.

Let roll around in the trunk as you drive around and clean your clad.

Cleaning coins for one devalues them to any degree. Why clean them just to turn them into the bank?

I personally would just take them to the bank and let them destroy them out of circulation vs spending all that time and money and resources to clean coins. Rather be out detecting.
I clean them but just enough to get them to pass the coin sorter. I wouldn't tumble anything of value.
