    No one is full of ***** otherwise they'd be dead.

    Now, with that settled, to clean your bearings you
    a. Pop off the shields
    b. Put the bearings in a solvent such as
    1. Paint thinner/mineral spirits
    2. Denatured alcohol
    3. Gasoline
    4. Kerosene
    5. Carburetor cleaner
    c. Take them out a little bit later after the dirt has been mostly removed.
    d. If you have one, take a can of compressed air and spray the bearings. If not, leave them dry on a napkin for a few minutes.
    e. Relubricate them using the lubricant of your choice (I use synthetic oil/skate lubricant).
    f. Put the shields back on.
