Do not consume or use as a mixer. Keep them away from pets and stupid people.

I'm currently using a brew I whipped up after reading the Ed's Red formula. It's equal parts ATF and mineral spirits, about an 1/8 part engine oil, and just a touch of dot3 brake fluid. I added the brake fluid because of what I've seen it do to paint, and figured why not. It actually works very well on lead fouling and leaves a very light oil sheen when dry.

But I think most common mild industrial solvents will clean guns fine, assuming you test for plastic damage first. I just watched a you tube vid made by a revolver smith, and he uses and recommends charcoal lighter fluid. I use straight mineral spirits when I want to soak parts. It works great.

Just buy accident I was trying to remove some surface rust from a rifle of mine and decided to try brake fluid. Yes it did remove the rust and the bluing dumb. I have heard that brake fluid would ruin a paint job,But I learned how to remove bluing also. What was I thinking?

so you found a cheap and easily available blueing remover! cool. Walmart in my town is open 24/7, so if i needed to remove blueing, at 3 am, and didn't have any, i could get some brake fluid at WalMart!
