It went right over my head.

I have no sense of humor.

I have a question regarding the rinsing process, when you are rinsing, do you mean taking the clean tooth brush, dunking it in water, and using that to rinse?

When I did my cleaning, the rinsing was done under light running warm tap water and a very gentle brushing with the soft tooth brush.  Then I would blot it dry between a dry face cloth and let stand till dry..

I guess I'm a bit different.  I'm a bigger fan of the uncleaned patina.

I put the patch under the flowing water and scrubbed the excess tartar off with the clean brush. Then blotted it dry with paper towels then let it air dry for a couple of days.
