Do I need 725 Gun Cleaner or Carbon Killer?
That depends on a few things.
Are you using Slip 2000 lubricants?
Are you cleaning of a regular basis?
How many rounds do you shoot between cleaning?
What type of weapons are you shooting?

If you are using a Slip 2000 lubricant, shooting between 500-1000 rounds and cleaning regularly then the 725 Gun Cleaner should be all you need for most weapons. It is an all-purpose cleaner and can be applied directly or used in ultrasonic cleaners and parts washer.

If you are not using a Slip 2000 Lubricant, have neglected the cleaning of your guns or shoot automatic weapons with a lot of rounds, you may need Carbon Killer. It will remove more extreme carbon, lead and plastic fouling buildup. Carbon Killer is a far more aggressive cleaner and should only be used as directed.

Can 725 Gun Cleaner be used in ultrasonic cleaners?
Yes. In fact we recommend that you use it in all parts washers and ultrasonic cleaners.

Is 725 Gun Cleaner safe to use on the plastic found in guns such as Glock and Kel-tec.
Yes. 725 Gun Cleaner is safe to use on plastic gun parts.

Is 725 Gun Cleaner water based?
Yes. All of our cleaners are water based.

What product can I use to neutralize and remove corrosive ammo?
725 Gun Cleaner / Degreaser is a water based cleaner that is very effective at neutralizing and removing corrosive ammo.

How do I dispose of used cleaners?
The cleaners by themselves are not the issue. It is after you have used them to clean and they become contaminated with carbon and heavy metals they have removed from your guns. These contaminants can be toxic and hazardous and in turn your used solutions should be treated as such.

The best thing to do is to find a local disposal location for Household Hazardous Waste. They will usually take them for you. Often times your local city or local waste management company will have information online on where you can drop them off and may even have a home pick service available.

The rules and regulations vary from city to city and from state to state so you will have to check for your area, but usually it is pretty straight forward.
