Good stuff. The ATF helps the oil creep and there is no need to stress about the solvent in ATF. I just wish it weren't a red color.
I am loving Ed's red (minus the acetone) to drop my XD barrel in for cleaning. Make clean up a snap.
Oh, and almost all products (CLP wise) have a touch of solvent. That's why it's called CLEAN LUBRICATE PROTECT. So no worries about ATF at all. It does stain though.
I always try to use gloves when cleaning any of guns. Just for safety... overkill? maybe, but better safe than sorry.
Hope this helps.
