Another solution to dispel greasy gunky ickyness,(technical term), is to
tumble the steel shot with a few teaspoons of No-Rust powder,(sold
through most jewelry supply houses), and a wee bit of water. Tumble for
an hour or two in this slightly gritty solution, and… Voila! Clean and
shiny again. It is also great for removing rust on the steel shot,(tumble
the same way), and, the addition of this powder also allows for the
storage of the shot in water. I got this hot tip from a large manufacturer
acquaintance of mine. Works like a charm.
