Lanolin comes from sheep wool, is 100% natural and non toxic and can be used as rust proofing for your tools. It biodegradable and has a high melting point so will not run off your tools on a hot day.
It has been used in industrial applications since 1929 when it was first discovered that this sheep grease had such amazing properties at preventing rust.
Lanolin oil is the best rust proofing natural product you can use because its moisture is not just on the surface of the metal, it has the ability to penetrate into the metal and create a microscopic coating to stop any rust from forming.
On metal projects
It can also be used for a variety of metal projects including when installing nuts and bolts, machine parts, bolts, nuts, or anything that touches metal.
On wood projects
It can also be useful on wood by rubbing some onto screws as they are being inserted as a lubricant that will keep moisture out and prevent rotting.
Add a drop of lanolin oil to your mechanical devices to protect them from rust and corrosion. It is one of the best lubrication agents for machine parts, especially for hard to reach places or those that are open and exposed to outdoor elements like rain and snow.
Truly, the natural oil found in sheep's wool has many uses that you might not have thought about before!
