a. Clean and dry all MACK components according to the respective instructions in the MACK's care and maintenance manual. Most importantly, ensure that all items are thoroughly DRY before returning items to the container for storage. One wet or damp item will spread its moisture to all other items in that container, causing mildew, rot, rust, etc. If carabiners are being oiled for long term storage, do not place them in the same container as any of the ropes/cordage.
