The key is to clean them thoroughly, remove water, protect them and keep them dry, so:
- After cleaning dry thoroughly using a dewatering fluid such as WD40.
- Remove displaced water with forced warm air.
- Coat with a protective coating such as benzotriazole inhibitor, or a block co-polymer.
- Pack into benzotriazole treated paper lined wooden boxes. Moisture absorbent granules may also be used to keep the air inside the boxes dry.
When unpacked, remove the coatings with a phosphoric-based solution and dry them thoroughly.
