After you clean the parts in the electrolytic tank, use a Brillo pad  
to scour them off and then rinse them well with warm water.  The soap  
in the pads will leave a slight coating on the metal (even after you  
rinse all the soap off) which will keep them from re-rusting for  
about a month (or longer).
