FIREClean™ conditions metal - to resist carbon and other fouling buildup as well as providing durable lubricity. Firearms treated with FIREClean "blow out" fouling, rather than "trapping" fouling as other products do. In most cases, fouling can be simply "wiped off" with a rag or paper towel. Wire brushes with smelly solvants, dental picks to "pick off" carbon, etc. are a thing of the past.
