    Thanks, I had read this thread before I posted but still had some questions. So...

    Is heat recommended when using the solvent?

    Is there a temperature not to exceed when applying the CLP?

    Can paste be applied and then heated or is it best to heat first?

    Is there an advantage to the paste over the liquid?

    The heat is a method of application derrived from our own use of the product. Heat is good, use it. A hairdryer on high will suffice.

    Hello everyone I am new to this forum. i have been using Froglube for about a year and love it. I have never tried the heat method but will now, I can tell you that I carried my muzzleloader a lot this year for deer hunting, and being out in the cold then in a warm house several times it would draw moisture as soon as i stepped in the house, and no rust at all.

    The link above will take you to the shop site; and you can order online there.

    Give us a report when you get it. ;)

    From what I've seen this should help a lot curing the Arkansas humidity problem.

    NOT impressed in the least-LUCAS gun lube is far superior....but possibly I'm not using it correctly.

    I won a bunch of this stuff from a silent auction. I really like the liquid CLP for the AR BCG and the paste for everything else on the AR, BUT for my Glocks I still prefer the Tetragun

    Another FrogLube user here. One thing some people do is to not apply it properly the first time. You're supposed to warm up the metal before applying. I have the paste form. Brush it on the warmed metal and let it sit for about an hour. It acts almost like you're seasoning a cast iron skillet.

    After the hour is up, get a microfiber towel and wipe everything off. The metal will feel slick but not greasy. One thing is DO NOT use any other oils will FrogLube. FrogLube actually dissolves petroleum products. I've used it on our pistols and our rifles. It's great being able to clean up after shooting with a couple dry patches and a microfiber towel.

    I use it on everything. From 22lr thru 50BMG. Its better than advertised and not a burden on the wallet.

    Lucas also makes a very good gun cleaning oil.

    I use froglube on my sons ar-15 and it is great. Paying the high prices for the froglube solvent/degreasers gets old. Hoppes 9 solvent and others leave a residue that should be avoided. Has anyone found 70% rubbing alcohol effective? Just thought about the alcohol after the hopes...hmmmm.... Any thoughts?
