SeaFoam for cleaning guns?!?

Seems like there's nothing this stuff won't do for carbon buildup and cleaning moving parts in cars...

What about guns??

Would love to hear y'all's thoughts!

It'll work as good as anything else. Clean your gun with a different magic goo every time you shoot it for the rest of your life. You'll never notice any difference.

Seafoam and carbon.....I took a pair of used pistons and sat them top down in a pan of Seafoam. It did absolutely nothing to remove carbon.

A can of Seafoam is an extremely overpriced way of selling people $2 worth of isopropyl alcohol, naptha and light oil

I mix up some diesel fuel, red ATF fluid, KOIL and Hoppies # 9. Really cuts the carbon out. Trying some in my ultra sonic cleaner for pistols.

I'll take that as a collective "no," with a bunch of unrelated info and opinions thrown in for flavor...
