I just finished up getting some yote traps all set up new chains and swivels a couple have baseplates and lammed jaws. I boiled em with dishwasher soap and then gave them a little soak in vinegar to jump start the rusting proccess checked the next morn nothing. So then I soaked a while in saltwater and left em over night on the garage floor almost nothing just a few rust spots Grrrrrrr I wanted to dye and wax them TODAY and get some set out this weekend I think I might just go ahead and do it anyway.

If they're scent-free, wax 'em, set your pan tension & set 'em. Those coyotes won't care what color they are........

i boil my traps in sani flush toilet cleaner, then i rinse them off and place them under burlap, keeping the burlap wet it takes about a week though.

put them in the dish washer on pots and pans with NO soap, literally instant rust. Just watch your back for your wife for a few days after
