I agree with c3shooter. I have soaked some really nasty stuff in hoppes and i come back to the bowl after letting it soak all night and all the gunk is floating in the solution. Man, I love that stuff.
i use several different products depending on the task or what i'm doing. i use low odor mineral spirits if i want to soak something overnight or for a few hours while i work on other things. i use Kano Kroil as well. C3 is absolutely correct about this product. one of the best products i have ever used. i use it as a bore cleaner and that's why i bought it to begin with. i use it as a penetrating oil an a general purpose firearm cleaner. the Kano Kroil is amazing.
You all should use MPro-7 gun cleaner and other gun oil the cleaner has low oder and is safe to use in the house! This is a great produced I have been using it for years it cleans well. The oil is awesome also stay on the metal and is nice and sick! You guys gotta try it you will love it!
