Or is the key to submerge the carb so it soaks?

If I was going to use that technique, I would do it with carb cleaner. I have done it with carb cleaner. I let them sit, then ran the engine without draining them to get it through the jets. It was an improvement, but not as thorough as the process described here with pine sol.

I guess it depends how bad you think they are...
