    I was going to say the same thing, you beat me to it. Are you a Puff forum member?

    Put the damp silica gel packets in a slow oven (250 F) for four to five hours to dry them out for reuse.

    I saw the ad of VCI paper, it seems only good for one year. Dave M will the Renaissance wax polish the surface instead of coating?

    I use them in my tool boxes, ammo cases, gun safes and knife kits. They work tremendously well. If you use a tool box to store kitchen gadgets, you will notice immediately how they handle humidity and smell.

    I replace a couple times every season. You can buy gallon containers of them on Amazon.

    I don't think that Ren Wax polishes, well maybe it makes stuff shiny but I think of a polisher as something that turns dull to shiny and Ren Wax doesn't do that. It's more of a surface coating I would think. Like I mentioned earlier in the thread it is a fantastic long term storage solution.

    Will the Ren Wax itself discolor the carbon steel or will Ren Wax allow the carbon steel to discolor? The wax will not allow the steel to discolor nor will it discolor the steel.

    I personally wouldn't use wax on a blade that I use on food. For long term storage it's great. PS - it resists washing off too.

    I don't think anything has stood the test of time like cosmoline.
