Besides an Automag, I really don't buy into the oil in asa deal...especially with a poppet. You want the poppet surface clean of debris and lubricant.
I took 6ish months off without airing anything up to no ill effect. Just bite the bullet and break down/lube it all properly. At least do it with the precious S6.
I've been doing this since the mid '90s. I do what works for me and I don't buy into the consumer gimmicks. You can ask the guy below how meticulous I am with my gear and paint. It's borderline OCD.

Lol, speak for yourself. I've always taken care of my feet. The only time I've had socks like you describe was Afghanistan and those ****ers went into a burn pit. I still swear they became living sentient beings. They friggin' stood up by themselves man.
Besides, the "Evil crusty" socks weren't supposed to be worn on your feet anyways. You were doing it wrong.
