bore snakes, rem oil, dental tools and assort tooth brushes..not steel. birchwood casey for stainless ( though it is like compounding a cars finish vs a waxing)
otis is nice for the range but shares no parts with other brushes. if you are shooting the proper hardness of lead at the correct speeds you should have no leading. even in polygonal bbls.

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine

I think you'd be safe using Gunzilla. It is made from plants, has no toxic fumes and no toxic effects if it contacts your skin. It works very well too. I think you will find that cleaning using rods is much more effective. I've tried both and couldn't stand the cable type.

I use a rod on my short/pistol barrels. But I like the boresnake on the long arms.
I have a lot of different cleaning supplies in my kit, but I mostly use Gunzilla, toothbrushes, and patches. Along with a small pick kit from Lowes, and forceps from the ER.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!

I know that at least Gunzilla and WeaponShield are non toxic. Even unused motor oil and unused ATF is fairly harmless, provided you're not doing anything strange with them. Add nitrile gloves in the mix as well, and I second the recommendation to clean outside with a fan blowing the fumes away from you (although i can vouch that weaponshield is quite low odor, at least an unpleasant, strong odor - like hoppes 9).
You can usually find MSDS online by googling the product and then MSDS
For example, to find the weaponshield MSDS, google " weaponshield MSDS". You can see that so long as you don't burn the stuff or inject it at high speed under your skin, you should be fine.
The sheets aren't in a standard format from manufacturer to manufacturer, but they always have at least the same basic information.
