Up until this week, I've had a brilliant oily rage for rubbing down my guns. My father started using it in the 1970s. It was a ripped up piece of his old pyjamas. I inherited it in the 1980s and have used it everytime I've cleaned a gun since then. It was soaked in oil and a rub with it put a lovely sheen on the barrels.
Well, my wife was having a clear out this week, and chucked it. Gone forever. I only realised as I was cleaning a gun after a few clays yesterday.
I feel like I've lost a family member!
Is there a quick fix alternative , or will I have to start from scratch again?
I reckon the pyjamas were 100% cotton. Any preferred fabrics ?
