I avoid the variations on Ed's Red because of the chemicals in it. Acetone is dangerous to the health.
My favorite cleaner is a mixture of deodorized kerosene, mineral spirits, Marvel Mystery oil, and a bit of STP lube. Works great. Not harsh at all to guns, finishes, and skin. The only time I use something else is when I need to remove copper fouling, in which case I use a commercial copper fouling remover.
I can't complain too much, mine just gripes about the smell of whatever aerosol or solvent I happen to be using in the kitchen and then goes on her way. I'm the one breathing it in so maybe I'M CRAZY or damaged goods at least and while she's a crybaby I'm kind of a jerk so I can't point fingers..... (though the rest I ever dated were psychologically lacking to say the least)
speaking of the frail-bodies: I got mine to shoot a bit last range trip
can't get her interested in loading, can't get her interested in the mechanical aspect of guns when I disassemble them in front of her, but she's shooting again... there might be hope
