i have two wet stones i use on a steady basis, about once a week (1200 & 6000 grit)
i soak for about 10 to 15 mins then sharpen and let air dry
they get stored in dry towels in a dry, dark area
the stones have started smelling like mildew and i don't know how to get rid of it
what can be used to clean a stone? can i still get the smell out? and should i be using it to sharpen a knife?
