Where would we be without our trusty gardening tools? To get the best from them we need to show them a little tender loving care to ensure that they last for many years.
To keep your good tools clean, try this quick trick:
1). Fill a bucket with builder’s sand and saturate the sand with vegetable or car oil.
2). Knock off any soil and dig the metal parts of the tools into the oily sand a few times. This serves three purposes: it cleans off excess dirt, it lightly sharpens the blades, and it oils the tools at the same time.
3). Hang them up and they are ready for the next time you need them.
