I can’t say enough good things about Southern Bloomer Mfg. I love their patches and customer service. It doesn’t get any better.
Southern Bloomer patches are made from a soft cotton knit…like t-shirts and underwear material…soft and absorbent. That’s funny because that’s how Southern Bloomer Mfg started…they made panties and night shirts for the Federal prisons. One day they took the scrap material from production and made cleaning patches from them. The rest is history.
Cotton knit patches work really well for cleaning guns and just about anything. The cotton knit is very absorbent so it holds a lot of cleaner or oil. It’s also lint free and tough. They won’t fall apart when cleaning a gun barrel and actually help scrub it clean.
So how hard is it to make a good cleaning patch?
…you might think it’s very easy but I’ve used many patches and some flat out suck. Some don’t hold oil or cleaner and some leave lint inside the barrel. And then some tear when putting them on the end of a jag.
Southern Bloomer shotgun patches are tops. They’re nice and big and make cleaning a shotgun quick and easy. I usually only have to use 3 or 4 and my shotgun bore is shiny clean. I use the 3 x 3 size for my 12 gauge. You get 500 to a bag which will last you a long time. Here’s a link to buy them online…Southern Bloomer Shotgun Patches 3×3/500 bag at Amazon.com
