Well that depends. Did you take all the carb apart? All pieces that contained rubber, plastic ? Did you soak it or just spray it down?

I'm assuming its an Outlaw 525 with the FCR carb.  Its usually that rubber o-ring in the carb slide that gets messed up first.  I have pulled them out and let them dry then soaked them in automatic transmission fluid an they were fine.  However it sounds like you might have pulled the slide assembly out and put the plate back on upside down. They don't like to idle when you do that.  Also be sure you got the little o-ring seated correctly on the idle mixture screw.  
  Either way, the carb isn't trashed, you can buy the o-ring and other parts online from JD Jetting.

I can see the rubber on the slide it's all wavy looking

You might try soaking it overnight in ATF fluid (I prefer Dextron).  Then be sure you put the plate back on the right way, the first time I took one apart I put it in upside down, and after a little research it seems to be a really popular mistake.  lol
