    The way I have seen done is
    1. Empty tin into a empty jam jar with a lid.
    2. Put a splash of washing up liquid in and then 2/3rds fill with warm water.
    3. Agitate the jar enough so as not to damage pellets
    4. Tip into a plastic sieve (not a food one) and then rinse with warm water.
    5. Put on a teatowel or something similar to absorb the excess water
    6. Use a hairdrier to dry them off keeping an eye out for damaged ones.
    7. Put warm pellets into a ziplock bag and then add few drops of the lube and swish around in the bag to coat the pellets.

    Me all I do is just chuck some lube on them in a ziplock bag.

    1. Open tin.
    2. Boil kettle.
    3. Open Matey bubble bath.
    4. Place pellets in a suitable reseptical ( i use a Dolmio pasta sauce jar).
    5. Pour water & bubble bath into reseptical.
    6, Shake the reseptical like you are trying to pull a grizzly bear off.
    7. Drain pellets through an old sprout bag.
    8. Place in oven ( on a tray obviously,non stick obviously) gas mark 4 next to a Findus crispy pancake.
    9. Remove from oven.
    10. Apply liberal coating of suitbable lube ( i use Blue Stratos & Unicorn piss).
    11. Shoot said projectiles at tin chickens !

    I agree but... I suggets first add only 2 drops of lub per tin in the ziplock bag, spread lub and then add pellets.
