i know the residue and smell you're talking about. the difference for me is night and day after doing the above. just minimize the conditions that might cause it to rust, which isn't difficult.

if you could maintain airflow while it was hanging dry, even better.. say, with something like this.
You wash a non-washable hose? How long have you been doing this? To each their own I guess, just watch out because you will eventually have to replace it.
