Silicone gun sleeves - washing them?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have several of the old gun sack, silicone impregnated gun sleeves.  Will washing them reduce their effectiveness or more importantly make them a detriment?

 

I usually just use them to cover a firearm to keep a VCI product from contacting the surface then vacuum pack them,   But wondering if they lose their protective qualities fete a light wash?

 

By the way, they make great window cleaners... another topic coming up.

 

Thanks,

John

Wash them thoroughly and simply rejuvenate them . You can even make silicone wiping cloths  using mirofiber towels and keep them in a zip lock bag. 

If this amount bothers You  Cabela's or Sportsmans  should carry Kiwi Camp Dry aerosol  .   When hunting I'll take  a hard case and a soft case  ,while traveling it's in the  Hard case ,while in camp I put My weapon in a soft case ,that I've sprayed the outside with Scotchgard .   I've seen some folks use Johnson & Johnson paste wax rubbed into fabric ( gun socks )  and they keep their guns in those socks !.

Good info.  So the product itself has nothing corrosive in it?  How do rejuvenate?  Soak, spritz then place in a zip bag for a few days to re-distribute evenly?

Depends on what You buy and how it's applied . Some products spray on , others you could soak and wring out or spray on with a spray gun and compressor .
