What did soldiers used to keep weapons dry in World War 2?

As in World War 2 and all wars in the past 250 years: Normally it is not possible to keep weapons dry, while in the field in combat operations. Weapons often got wet & dirty. It was always essential that the soldiers cleaned & lubricated their weapons on a regular basis. The weapons should be cleaned after firing them, especially the bolt & barrel. Powder residue builds up in the gun barrel of all pistols, rifles, machine guns, tanks guns, mortars, artillery, etc. These barrels and the internal workings have to be kept clean & free of water or debris. Every soldier is issued a cleaning kit for their specific weapon. It requires extensive training for soldiers to do these things well. It is the responsibility of sergeants and officers to inspect these weapons for proper maintenance often during the course of combat operations.
