And they smell powder fresh afterwards? :) Softens your hands while you clean your AR?

Never thought about that....do you use them to clean the entire rifle, inside and out?

We use them at the range for our hands after we are done shooting but never on our rifles? I just use a a Rem-wipe.

I'm sure they work great on plastic and aluminum but they have a lot of water in them. Keep them off of steel parts.

Sure helps getting that Tannerite dust off your hands and leaving that baby fresh scent.

BreakFree makes 'Weapon Wipes' that are just like baby wipes except that they use CLP.

ahaha... When I was in basic, our Frill Sgts told us to use baby wipes to clean them. It worked out pretty good and i still use them. +1 to baby wipes

baby wipes are generally 100% cotton. If I were going to use them for gun cleaning I would rinse them with water and let them dry first and then use the cleaning fluid of my choice with them.

But the smell of heavy grease or a light oil on a gun is MANLY!

The smell of baby wipes only brings to memory all the grossness that comes with a baby.

i'd rather use a cut-up old T shirt than baby wipes. i'd be scared of all that excess water going on my firearms. maybe clean with baby wipes THEN wipe down with CLP or something similiar....

Same here, i use my old brown Army t-shirts to clean and wipe down my rifles. I wont use baby wipes on my rifles, might as well dust a paper towel with baby powder and run it under the faucet. Its scented water is what it is.
