Default Flash Rust

Hey Everyone,

Of the 20 or so pieces I've restored, none of them have ever flash rusted until this Dutch oven. Why do some and others not?

My experience has been about the opposite. A slight change in technique, atmospheric conditions, timing, material or physical cleaning set-up can alter the results. Not to worry, just proceed.

How's the humidity where you are? Could be more moisture in the air?

I live in south central PA and it is very humid here. I don't deal well with heat though and keep the air conditioning at 70 so the humidity is low in the house.
