View Full Version : Best Carbon Cleaner
can someone tell me what the best carbon cleaner is. I have tried Slip 2000 Carbon Killer and am so far underwhelmed by its performance.
For cleaning AR bolts?
I use Motorcraft "fuel injection cleaner" comes in a metal pint can,
can be found at your Ford dealer's parts counter.
Have you tried soaking? I just throw my "can" into.the bottle for a few days and its nice and clean ^_^
As monkeykevin mentioned, I soak mine overnight, comes out spotless. :supergrin:
thanks for the responses. I have tried soaking the parts overnight but it still demands a lot of elbow grease. The parts are the flash hider, gas regulator cap and piston tube from my Sig 556 Classic Swat. Those are the only parts that get any appreciable carbon deposits. I never thought of letting them soak for a few days. I'll give it a try and if it does not work try the Motorcraft product.
What was your issue with Slip 2000 in regards to performance? I was going to order some in the near future. I currently use MPro 7 and some Milcomm products with no problems.

I place the parts in a gallon ZipLock bag, pour in enough cleaner to submerge,
then carefully remove as much airspace in the bag I can. Then seal up, place in
an old plastic container in case it leaks. Get the clean parets out the next day,
they are spotless, or only require a toothbrush to remove the rest of the carbon.
I use CLP. Used it for years in the Army, and that's all they use. It's good enough to pass a rifle inspection.
For me, I build upcarbon like no other onto my suppressor, piston tube, and piston rod. I personally LOVE Slip2000 product because its environmentally safe (TOXIC IMO still) I do a quick pre-clean with 725 Degreaser, then soak it 1-2 days in Piston/Choke cleaner, and 1 day in Carbon Killer which are all Slip2000 product. I do find Carbon Killer leaving a slight residue/green film behind looking like a corroded penny.
Last but not the least, light coat of EWL lube then set and forget on LOW temp in the mini oven =P After that lightly remove any excess lube.
my beef with CK was that it did not perform as advertised. I guess I was too gullible in believing their marketing message. But when you say that all you have to do is soak the soiled parts for a specific time then wipe clean, I expect to do just that. And of course it did not. Oh well fool me once...
No need to go through any of that. Just hose it down with any good cleaner and wipe it off. If it doesn't come off, don't sweat it. If a cleaning takes more than 15 minutes you're wasting time.
Nobody scrapes it off?

Scraping is not required. It even be detrimental.
I like gunscrubber
