How to Look After Your Garden Tools Properly

To keep your good tools clean, try this quick trick.

  • Fill a bucket with builder’s sand and saturate the sand with vegetable or car oil.
  • Knock off any soil and dig the metal parts of the tools into the oily sand a few times.
    This serves three purposes:
    1. It cleans off excess dirt,
    2. It lightly sharpens the blades
    3. It oils the tools at the same time.
  • Hang them up and they are ready for the next time you need them.
