It is also crucial to evade them from keeping wet for lengthy periods of time. You must never leave your tools outside as they will rust fast if they are exposed to the weather for a prolonged time.
  2. Store your tools appropriately. Once you have cleaned your gardening tools, let them dry meticulously before you store them in some dry place like a cupboard, or a shed. Try to avoid clogging them together inside a van or box because this leads to their sides becoming blunt. The best way is to store them separately. You can even consider making a hanging stand in your cabin or shed.
  3. Store your tools inside a bucket of oil or sand. A number of gardeners advise cleaning and washing your tools in water, and letting them dry in an open area, then plummeting them into a bucket jam-packed with a mixture of oil and sand to store them there. This method is often considered to prevent the tools from catching rust.
