FrogLube CLP Review

Froglube is a non toxic, biodegradable gun cleaner, lubricant and protectant or CLP. It is an amazing product. It accomplished 3 processes in one. It cleans fouling from guns, lubricates moving parts and protects metal from corrosion and rust. It penetrates deep into the micro pores of the metal to prevent fouling from adhering to the metal. It creates a slick surface that decreases friction. Because it penetrates the metal pores, it prevents the elements from coming in contact with the metal.

So why is Froglube better than other CLP’s?

Froglube goes on wet and penetrates into the metal and dries in a short period of time. It forms a dry barrier that lubricates and protects metal surfaces. It is not wet and slippery like most oils and lubricants. Froglube is a treatment system. It “seasons” the metal and makes subsequent cleanings faster and easier.

Here is an intense gun CLP test/review involving corrosion resistance and lubrication where Froglube tops most other CLP’s….CLP Test.

How is it applied?

Here is how you apply Froglube the very first time.

  1. Clean your entire firearm with Froglube Solvent to remove all other lubricants, oils, sludge, dirt, cosmoline, etc. This prepares it for the application of Froglube CLP
  2. Heat or apply Froglube to a warm firearm. You can do this treatment on a cold firearm but it works way better on warm or hot metal surfaces. Warm or hot metal allows it to penetrate deeper. It makes a huge difference and I always clean my gun “hot” with Froglube CLP. I use a heatgun to heat my guns up. I heat everything up to about 120 degrees and then apply the CLP.
  3. Apply a liberal amount on all gun parts ( with a cotton ball, patch or q-tip )and let it soak for about 15 minutes or so. It should produce a dry surface but slick to the touch. I apply another light coat after this to get a deeper barrier. Then wipe with a clean dry cloth.
  4. Now your firearm is ready for action.
  5. After each shooting session, clean you firearm as you would with any other cleaner. The cleaning process is no different with Froglube

Clean your firearms thoroughly with Froglube Solvent first.

The more times you clean your gun with Froglube, the easier it will get. It builds up in the metal pores and retards fouling. You can feel the difference. The metal surface has a slick feel to it but is not wet.

I use Froglube because it works extremely well and it’s NON TOXIC. I don’t want to be concerned about nasty chemicals in my house. It has a nice minty odor and does not make your skin crack like other cleaners.
