Think green when you clean!

Who has not tried FrogLube out there yet? Yes, it's green and smells like wintergreen. It's non-toxic, non-flammable and even food grade as measured by the USDA.

But besides that, IMO, it's the absolute best CLP on the market. Take a look at their website at www.froglube.com.

I like to tell people about FrogLube because it is to gun cleaning, lubrication and protection as jet engines where to planes. It's really that much better.

I don't work for the company. I'm just a big fan. I've been using it for over a year, going on two and I absolutely love the stuff and will never switch back.

Just thought I'd start this thread here in case anyone is frog-curious.

It's not only a better cleaner and lubricant, but it leaves your gun feeling dry to the touch and fingerprints don't stick. It also doesn't dry out over time. It just stays put, since it bonds with the surfaces. And with this bonding process, it prevents dirt, carbon and gunk from sticking to your gun so that future cleanings are a snap. Most crud just wipes off with a rag.

The initial purchases is a little more expensive, but not much and in the long run, it's much cheaper to use because it lasts so much longer.

It was made by and for US Navy SEAL Team members, who regularly swim with their guns underwater. Two brothers got together and decided to sell it to the public, but only to countries friendly with the US.

It's really amazing stuff. If you haven't tried it yet, you should. And read the directions before applying it. Since it's not oil based, you apply it differently, at least the first couple of times. After that, your surfaces become seasoned and the time and amount of product greatly decrease for subsequent cleanings.

I'm not trying to change everyone over to FrogLube, but it would be nice if everyone tried it and proved it for themselves.

It's amazing stuff! Plus a percentage of all their profits go to US veterans, especially groups like wounded warriors.

You are good. Are you sure you aren't a salesman for them? It really is good stuff, though.

I don't think it's publicly held.

But if it was (and I had any money) I would!

You can also put it on sliced bread. You can... I won't, but feel free.

Great stuff. If you go to any gun shows, they usually have free samples, but you might have to get there early.

I'm a FL convert too! One by one over a few months I've changed my firearms over to Frog Lube.
So far my LCR, Charger, Sr9c & most recently my SR1911CMD have all taken the leap to FL!

My Sr9c was a bear to rack & after I FL'd, it racks sooo much easier. Clean up takes a fraction of the time after the initial FLing. The grips can be FL'd & they don't cause any slipperiness at all.

The LCR 357 needs to be really clean as I shoot only 38special & 38+P, I want to keep it really spotless. The FL won't hurt the Crimson Trace Laser Grips or my XS sight if some gets on it.

The Charger has the longer barrel & its still a breeze to clean with FL. Plus I clean the lips to the BX-1 & BX-25 mags with FL and they clean up just like new.

My SR1911CMD looks so nice after she's cleaned, no finger prints either.

When you're done cleaning w/FL, your finger tips are slick & smooth, but dry not greasy.

When cleaning with FL, wear older clothes because it will stain.

I wonder how it would taste on a PB&J sand?

I thought I'd give a little update after using FL for a few years. We've had absolutely no rust in our hand guns or long guns since using FL. I'm still feeling the luv for FL and will continue to use it. There is no greasy feeling, no grittiness, and its still a breeze to clean up after shooting.

Anyone else still using FL or converted lately? What are your thoughts on Frog Lube?

I stick with Hoppe's No.9 solvent, I just can't resist the lovely aroma. Did you know they actually have hang-up air fresheners of it?

I also use their gun oil, patches, and their jags on my Dewey brass rods.

It's been taking care of guns for 112 years, not a bad track record.

Wow! I forgot all about this post. I've not been shooting in quite awhile but when I get a chance to dirty up my guns, you know I'll be thinking green.

Hey jlh! So good to see you here again.

Since you've been using FL longer than most of us, how have your firearms done after several years of using it?

They're all like new. Even the action in my 10/22 .and 22's are dirty. It took about 3 cleanings before the action would wipe clean. I still have to brush the inside of the casting because it's not a smooth surface. But cleaning is much easier and faster now.

If I remember correctly, the last time FL entered the discussion, people in the northern climates hated it since it became very hard to work with in cold weather. Everyone praised the Rem Oil for cold weather shooting.

I'm in the frozen wind here & no issues about FL being hard to work with. My guns rack smoothly before & during shooting. I wonder if the people that discussed FL being hard to work with in the cold weather had used the proper directions for "seasoning" their firearms?

I will use Frog Lube to coat the outside of my barrels and such but do not use it on moving parts.

I've had it gel up to much and slow things down when it's cold.

It was cold and a friend who had used it pulled his pistol and it didn't fire.
Because of this, the coyote killed his dog. Instead of him killin the yote.

It's a good rust preventative but I don't use it on my actions, pins and stuff anymore.

That was my experience. Yes, I followed the directions.

I have been using a lot of Strike Hold lately and it works well.

Same here. I hate the stuff on moving parts but love it on the outside wherever you touch the firearm. It also fills in tiny scratches that dulls a finish. I've made old scopes look brand spanking new.

It's claim to fame is a moving parts lubricant and rust protector, not a polish.
