Well, my only experience with corrosion so far (cross fingers!) was a new custom-made case that had silver-plated instruments tarnish within hours... even after weeks of airing it out, it still tarnished the stuff in no time. Only remedy was to make it my gun case (sturdy aluminium case with cipher locks, could fit three standard handgun cases and ammo for a routine training session).

Bob Reeves Mundrohr Swab - Thomann Sverige
Those cleaning mops tend to leave some residual lint, though, which sort of defeats the purpose since I still have to flush that out of the leadpipe to prevent lint in the valves...

"Pypes, trompes, nakers, clariounes, that in bataille blowen blody sounes"
Just a barefoot, backwoods loon dancing from one dapple of sunlight to the next upon the crunchy forest floor of life. Care not a hoot for high-falutingness, just love the day, its tranquil twilight, and the reprise of treefrogs and cicadas late into the warm summer's night.
