Odor Free Equipment Preparations
100% silicone oil
and grease for scent
free rust protection and lubrication of your bows and guns. To get odor free equipment it with
rubbing alcohol to remove oil and grime. It will evaporate 100%. Acetone works
faster on unpainted surfaces. Silicone does have a high oxidation resistance
therefore preventing rust and corrosion.
Another scent free oil is U.
S. Pharmaceutical grade (USP) mineral oil which can be found in the laxative
section at your local drug or food store. It is also protective from rust and
corrosion and has no odor.
Peanut oil and corn oil has
a slight scent which can act as a deer attractant and rust protective lubricant
as well. If you or anyone in the family or hunting group are allergic to peanuts
you should be careful with peanut products products.
All of these oils are
preferable to crude or coal based products which contain aromatic byproducts
which deer associate with humans. The only thing to remember is that organic
food oils do become rancid and equipment should be cleaned after being brought
home and coated with USP mineral oil
As with clothes, enzyme solution
sprayed on gun and
archery cases will produce an odor free surface when it dries. if these cases
are padded you might have to pretty well soak the fabric to reach contaminants.
When you spray these cases let the moisture dry completely before storing the
equipment in them. Another scent reducing method is to put cases and other
equipment in the sun for a while drying or use a hir dryer. This will help evaporate volatiles not
converted by the enzyme solution treatment. Allways get a new desiccant bag to put in the
cases while storing equipment and guns, this will reduce the possibility of rust.
