Let’s face it. Unless you’ve got a serious case of OCD, gun cleaning and lubrication isn’t the most exciting topic to read – or write about for that matter. However, the topic’s application is critical to carry out if you want a fully functioning, problem free firearm. Like your vehicle, precision wristwatch or any other mechanical device, cleaning and maintenance is essential to keep things running right.
If you’ve been around guns even for a short while, you’ll realize that the world of gun cleaners, lubes and protectants is fraught full of a head spinning selection of products as well as performance claims. I discovered a non-toxic bio-based gun lubricant and cleaner about a little over seven years ago called Frog Lube. It was (and maybe still is) one of the most unique cleaner, lubricant, protectant (CLP) that I have encountered thus far.
One of the aspects that makes FrogLube unique from other CLPs is that it is made only of food grade ingredients and has been awarded the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred Label. Among its many attributes, the bio-based, non-toxic, minty smelling cleaner, lubricant, preservative is said to provide significant fouling reduction, dissolves rust and hydrocarbons on contact and even stretches out long term firearm storage from months to years.
FrogLube’s story began in 2009 in Huntington Beach, California, where brothers, David and Larry Lasky decided to develop a bio-based lubricant to compete against traditional petroleum-based lubes. Even if you aren’t an organic, gluten free, tree hugger type, there’s something appealing about working with a cleaner that is completely non-toxic. The first formulas were derived from existing products already found in commercial use and were further developed by the brothers and tested with the help of Larry’s co-workers – a group of active and former U.S. Navy SEALs. We probably should mention that Capt. Larry Lasky himself is a retired U.S. Navy SEAL.
