If you’re trying to keep something rust-proof, here’s a solution you can make. Combine two cups of petroleum jelly and half a cup of lanolin in a microwave-safe bowl and heat the mixture until it melts together. Stir frequently, and make sure to apply to the rust-prone item while the mixture is still warm. Remember, don’t wipe it off; allow the paste to dry on the item.
