Default Firearm cleaning.

What's a good product to clean my firearm. I'm new in owning a firearm.

I've recently started using Frog Lube. Love the fact that it's natural and not a petroleum product. All my guns have a fresh, clean smell to them! Easy to use, easy to clean up.

Simple Green is what I use. Easy on the hands, smell isn't bad and it does wonders at taking off caked on grease. Rinses with water, also.

Hoppes is fine, been used for decades. That and a good oil is about all most people will ever need. Seems like the new trend is to over think gun cleaning. I like to keep it simple.

Kano Kroil and Shooters Choice Bore Cleaner mixed 50/50 is what I use regularly.
