    Dehumidifer technology allows us to not take such drastic measures...

    And the 0000 steel wool with oil is good... even scotch brite pads and ATF (transmisson fluid, not the gov't agency) will help. From there, it depends on what finish was compromised.

    My favorite is Barricade by Birchwood Casey.

    Not greasy and does not seem to attract dust or grime.

    Couple times a year I buy 3-4 spray cans at Academy.

    Dunno if it's the best stuff but I find it works great.

    Ancient gun rust remover my grandfather taught me a half century ago:
    Rub it briskly with a simple copper penny and then oil it.
    Takes off the particulate oxidized matter and does not touch the finish or healthy metal.

    I usually say "Just my 0.02 cents.".
    I'll say 0.01 in this case!

    Ah yes, but where does one find a copper penny these days. :)
