HOUSEHOLD SAVINGS IDEAS:
GARDEN TOOLS take a lot of abuse. You can lose years of useful life from the effects of environmental enemies like corrosion, rust, tree sap, water and dirt. Here's a simple way to keep tools healthy, lubricated, and rust free with almost no effort. Next time you change the oil in your car, pour it into a bucket of sand and add your garden tools. It's just that simple. The grit from the sand holds the oil and polishes the metal surfaces. Tools hold fast in the sand and are ready for use. Just don't forget to clean tools before and after use with an old cotton rag.
