Numerous blogs, videos and other social media sources are making reckless claims that cooking oils and other commonly found household items could be a substitute for advanced firearms lubricants, including FIREClean™. These claims are false and dangerous.

FIREClean™ is publicly responding to this controversy by first issuing a safety warning: Using non-formulated cooking oils may lead to devastating and catastrophic failure of your firearm. Attachment mechanisms of various oils to metal surfaces are not commonly understood. Nor is the reaction of different oils to air and other substances. The combination can and often will result in permanent damage to valuable property and render firearms inoperable. This can easily result in catastrophic consequences.

Through social media some individuals are unbelievably encouraging the public to use firearms lubricants and cooking oils interchangeably; but gun lubricants should not be assumed ‘safe’ for consumption or food preparation! For example, our product, FIREClean™ is not re-labeled Crisco, nor is it relabeled canola oil or simple vegetable oil. The bottle is clearly labeled "do not consume" and those directions should be followed. "Our company urges people not to consume or use FIREClean™ in the preparation of food." pointed out Matthew Bergstrom, FIREClean™ Counsel.

Those relying on a functioning firearm should not take needless risk by using substances not expressly intended for firearms applications. Such a choice could cause the gun to malfunction and render it unable to perform for self-defense, for hunting, for competition, or in the line of duty. At the least, untested substances could risk damage to expensive guns. At worst, a malfunctioning firearm could cause grave bodily injury or death.

"FIREClean™ is a patent pending extreme performance gun oil. It is odorless, biodegradable, safe, and made in the USA. A product like FIREClean™ has undergone years of research, development, and testing requiring firing hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition and about as many dollars. The result is an extraordinary formula helping ensure the reliability, durability, and easy cleaning of firearms", confirmed Bergstrom.

Whatever product gun owners ultimately chose to use, firearms safety concerns should urge the use of a tested, proven product. The shooting public’s safety - - your safety - - and maximizing the performance of your firearms especially for duty and self-defense use, is FIREClean’s™ primary objective.
