The place for general talk about gun, shooting, loading, camping, survival, and preparedness related tools and gear, as well as gear technology discussion, gear reviews, and gear specific "range reports" (all other types of gear should be on the back porch).

Cleaning question

Post by AndytheAxe » Wed Oct 23, 2019 12:00 am

Hoping this is the right thread. I got a bit enthusiastic cleaning my 686 after the range today and I got CLP and gun oil all over one of my more liked shirts. Didn't notice until I was done the revolver. Is shout/oxyclean good to get it off or do you recommend something else?

Oil and/or grease I'd try pretreating with dish soap (Dawn or equivalent) if that doesn't get it try Goop (waterless hand cleaner).

It'll probably take a few tries.

Better to have a gun cleaning shirt. ;)

what he said. Whatever you do, to not put it in the dryer until you are sure it is clean. That will set it FOREVER.

Oil eater? Stuff sold by granger and tractor supply works great for getting grease out of clothes

Looks like the dish soap worked!

Dawn was part two a "secret" cleaning process at one place i worked. Part one was kero.
