Hi, Eric --
        Penetrox is a anti-oxidant  used on electrical connections. It only 
works on the direct connection (under a  nut and bolt, etc.) and has to be 
under compression (the same nut and bolt) in  order to work. Anything not under 
the direct connection is superfluous and will  probably wash away so it's doing 
exactly what you'd expect - protect the  connection and disappear if not in
