Default Cleaning guns in the 1800s

I need a history lesson. My wife laughs at me. She says “you go shooting for an hour and then spend 2 hours cleaning and oiling your guns.” She asks “did you ever see Wyatt Earp or Doc Holliday clean and oil their guns?” Got me to thinking, how did people in the mid and late 1800s clean their guns?” Does anyone have a history lesson for me? Thanks, Bernie
