I was going to make that same point - if you flush enough warm/hot water through your horn, you will soak the valve felts and corks (if your horn has them), which will ruin the felts. I used to clean my horns that way until I realized this was happening. As for valve oil cleaning the valves, certain oils such as Blue Juice will clean the insides of your horn, but I don't know what's special about squirting valve oil down the 1st valve slide.
Schilke advised putting valve oil down the leadpipe to oil the valves. To clean the horn I use Vitamin C for a soak, followed by baking soda to kill the acid. A bunch of rinsing after.
