I suppose that's a working brew, but Caig admits to no naptha in the
pure DeoxIT bottles, like D100L, in fact admits nothing in the MSDS
except a flash point above 482 F. The spray version they admit is 75%
naptha, 20% propane or isobutane, and 5% DeoxIT. While oleic acid is a
component of many cleaning compounds including hair shampoo, neither it
nor naptha is going to leave significant lubricant behind and naptha has
a rather low flash point, like 42F. They say the active ingredients are
a trade secret.
