I have several waterstones I use for general sharpening. I keep them in a container in water so they are ready wen I need them. I notice when I take them out to use they have a sort of slimy coating that I have to clean off before use. I thought maybe a slight amount of Clorox mixed in with the water might be the answer but don’t know if that would have any effect on the stones. Does anyone else have any experience with this problem? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
