ramm,

If you don't clean the FC off the blade, you will develop a terrible case of rust when it dries and is exposed to the air. You can use baking soda to stop the action of the FC then wash in hot soapy water, dry, and apply a light coat of oil. Cooking oil will work just fine. A few drops on your fingers or a paper towel will be all you need. FC is a type of salt so I wouldn't worry about health concerns after it has been cleaned.

Carey.
