Why do you want to get all the CLP off before using the FP-10?  I too just ordered a bottle of FP-10 (from Brownells) and am waiting for it to be delivered; probably in acouple more days.  Interested in seeing how it performs as compared to others i.e. breakfree, hoppes etc.  Will post my results later on.

i was reading one of the other posts..i believe it was the "fp-10 vs. tw-25" the guy mentions cleaning all the clp off b4 applying the new lube. i wasn't sure if it was necessary or not. anyways, one good thing i can say so far is the fp-10 smells kinda cinnamony:)

No need to strip all the old clp off the weapon.Just wipe the old clp off as best you can with a cloth and clean with FP-10 clp.Ive used Break Free and FP-10 back to back with no issues.MPC/FP-10 also said no need to strip to bare metal,just wipe old oils off and clean with FP-10 CLP.Good to go.
FP-10 and Break Free are compatible.
Now with TW-25B you need to strip all the old clp or any other oils off before application,or the TW-25B will not stay put.TW-25B does not clean and will not bond to a contaminated surface very well.
If you want to ask George Fennell/FP-10 questions directly go here to the FP-10 forum:

Or email them directly from the website.

DO NOT use Simple Green on anodized aluminum. It is a very mild alkaline and will strip the anodization from the aluminum over time and repeated use.

Yeap,no simple green for me.
I'd rather use MPro7 or Mil-comm's MC-25 cleaner anyday.Really like the MC-25 cleaner from Mil-comm..Works great and cheap too.$15.00 for a pint.
