I’m sorry to ask this here but I cannot find an answer through any search anywhere online. You know the wire brushes that you use to brush rust off of items? Well once you rinse those wire brushes and they dry they rust so my question is how do you prevent them from rusting after you have used them, so far I’m getting soak them in vinegar and use denatured alcohol to dry them but I don’t think I can really use oil on them just due to the nature of how I use them to clean items. I think that would have a negative affect on the effectiveness of cleaning. So do you have any other suggestions on what to put on them to keep them from rusting again? I have recently started using spray silicone on my tools which seems to be working well so far and it’s not as heavy as WD-40. Any thoughts from anyone would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
