One of the few downsides of working on firearms or heading to the range is dealing with grime, lead residue, metal shavings and other contaminants that gather on shooters' hands. Luckily, Hoppe's has gun lovers covered with its new Lead-B-Gone Skin Cleansing Wipes.

The new cleansing wipes are made from soft towels that are saturated with a gentle pH cleaner and also contain aloe skin moisturizers. The wipes come in containers of 40 and are designed to remove lead, nickel, cadmium, arsenic, silver, mercury, zinc, chromium, copper and antimony, as well as powder residue.

According to the company's studies, the standard soap and water rinse after range time doesn't sufficiently remove all of the contaminants from a shooter's hands. In fact, Hoppe's claims that soap and water only removes 72 percent of contaminants. The company's new wipes will remove 98.8 percent of shooting residue from hands, and that number jumps to 99.9 percent if shooters follow up the wipes with a water rinse.

The wipes can be used on hands, arms, faces, necks and working surfaces after cleaning, shooting or performing firearm maintenance. Hoppe's warns that the wipes are not designed for use on firearms. The suggested retail price for a 40-wipe container is $12.99.
