LYSOL AS RUST PREVENTIVE—I saw a recipe for prevention of rust in gun barrels as follows: One ounce of Lysol to four parts of good oil: I sent to my druggist for this Lysol and he sent me what looks, tastes and smells like oil of creosote. I would like to know if it is the same. If so, I would think it would be more likely to cause rust than to prevent it.
If not identical, Lysol is practically the same as creosote. They are produced in the same way and used for the same purposes. They are antiseptic, and Lysol is used by surgeons on their instruments, not to prevent rust but to prevent infection, I do not think it would cause rust, but do not believe that it would be of much value as a rust preventive. There is nothing better than Vaseline for that purpose.
