When you’re finished in the garden, place your tools in a bucket or bread pan full of sand to keep them clean, dry, and free of rust or other corrosion. The sand will wick away moisture and help keep your tools dry until the next use.The blog Re-Nest reminds us of this old gardening trick that some mechanics have also applied in their garages to keep some of their tools dry and rust-free. They also suggest mixing in a couple of tablespoons of motor oil to the sand until it’s good and incorporated for a little added lubrication while keeping the rust away. Does it make sense or will you stick to a toolbox instead? Share your thoughts in the comments.
