What's the best cleaner/polisher

for the EXTERNAL parts of my Micro 9, like the outside of the slide and the lower frame. They are, as you know, two different metals. (I like clean and shiney ). Any household stuff work, like alcohol?

I use CLP on all my guns. Cleaner, lubricant, protector. Iím sure everyone is going to say what they use is the best but I can only say that I havenít has any issues with this stuff.

It is a very good cleaner and lube, I always picked it up at Walmart. But as usual any product that I like, Walmart stops carrying it

I use the same silicone cloth to wipe down all my guns after cleaning. That rag has traces of everything from FP-10 to CLP and none of my guns have rust or discoloration. They all shine nicely after a cleaning.
I would recommend alcohol after you unload your gun and know it’s safe.

I thought alcohol and gun cleaning go hand-in-hand

Ditto on the Ballistol. Only thing I use on my firearms now.

I keep Remington Gun Wipes in my range bag to give my guns a quick wipe down after handling them at the range.

At home on the bench Ö.first Gun Scrubber + compressed air Ö follow up with Barricade on everything. Bore Scrubber for bore and chambers, again follow with Barricade.

Small drops of CLP or other good gun oil on all pivot points Ö. gun grease on slides and rails of autos. This system has worked well for me for many years, on many guns and a lot rounds.
