Will water clean your guns?
…the answer just might surprise you.
OK…here’s a mess. I burned 2 powder charges of 40 grains of H4831 and tried to clean it with Froglube CLP. As you can see it did not clean up very well. This is part of a “seasoning” test for Froglube CLP and so I have to clean this without using anything that will remove the Froglube treatment. Hence the water clean. Let’s see what happened…
I sprayed the area with water and let it sit for 10 minutes. I then took a few clean gun cleaning patches and wiped the area. I then sprayed a little more water and rubbed some more with the patches.
Here’s the result after just 2 minutes of cleaning with water. Water penetrates or soaks into carbon fouling and will lift it off of metal surfaces. This is why water-based gun cleaners work the best without toxic chemicals. Some of the best water-based gun cleaners are M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner, Slip2000 725 Gun Cleaner and Mil Comm MC25.
