Standing Rigging Cleaning and Storage

Our fairly new rigging is getting dirty in the yard. So we've removed it from the mast and washed it with liquid dish soap. Now are planning on cleaning with Never Dull then T9. Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Re: Standing Rigging Cleaning and Storage

If you can pressure wash it helps to get the crap that gets inbetween the srtands and eventually oxidizes, out. A lot fo metal flake dust and micro-dust gets caught up in those strands and what is clean today is oozing rusty dirt in a month.

I paid a couple of $hundred to have mine electropolished because someone had used some steel bits to attach things and it had rust scale on it.

Came up like new and has stayed that way.
