Look after your Garden Tools

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.

    HA…..HA…..this works for hand tools in potting soils…………. Not with garden tools that dig into real soil and the earth…
