cleaning houge grips
My 226bss came with houge grips. Do I need to take them out for cleaning or they are immune to cleaning solvents and grease. What do you use to clean them.

Like none of us ever asks a dumb question lol.
I'm not a fan of those rubber Hogue grips tho allot of people are. I would remove them, use mild soapy water and perhaps an old soft toothbrush, rinse and let dry completely.

I just realize that I worded the question wrong.
What I meant is:
Is it safe for the grips to stay on while cleaning the gun with solvents and than grease it?

You should be fine...I never had an issue with mine when I used them on a duty pistol...you shoud check from time to time under them as they may trap moisture but no need to remove every time you clean unless whatever you are using has listed to not use near rubber or synthetic parts...

Hogue "rubber" grips are made of a material called thermoplastic elastomers. It's a synthetic rubber compound that does not have high resistance to harsh chemicals. General exposure to greases, solvents and oils won't do damage if residue is wiped clean. However if you leave solvents or oils on the grips for an extended period of time some damage could occur.
Degreasers or any chemical designed to remove oils would damage the grips since oil is one of the key ingredients that make the rubber feel soft.
