When I first started as an adult I had cheap $80 Bauers and those rubber skate guards...went to get them sharpened and they were bright orange with rust. Guy said the cheap skates have carbon steel that rusts quickly, so wipe them down every time.

Every other skate I've had with stainless steel blades I've used the "soaker" soft cloth skate guards, and no rust problems. I never take them off between skates except for sharpenings.
