would steel wool do any better to clean rust out of a cylinder?

the problem was that summit told me to return my heads before i had new ones shipped, so i had to wait a few days and the temp changed drastically and even though i lubed the cylinders one still rusted up.

so i talked to summit tech support and he told me i would need to clean it with steel wool and a penetrant so i guessed that scotch brite would be a better alternative.

I held a shop towel in the bottom of the cylinder when i did it, and i had it sprayed with wd-40 so it didn't seem to make much dust and before i put it together i planned on going around the top of the ring with an air compressor hose and blow it out of the top into a shop towel. would this not be enough to clean my scotch brite mistake?
