Cleaning a blue Steel and Brass Scabbard

QUESTION: I have an M1850 Staff and Field officers Sword. Could I use a Silicon Gun Cloth to clean the blue steel and brass scabbard? Thank you very much.
Yes indeed, a Silicon Gun Cloth will do no harm to either. Blue steel is already somewhat rust resistant anyway - and while it is preferable to use something like Brasso on the Brass, the Silicon Gun cloth will do no harm.
In short, shouldn't be any problems! :-)
