What do you do with rust on your garden tools? My spades and forks etc are either stainless steel or it rubs off and isn't a problem. My cutting tools are another story though; they got wet in my cupboard and all rusted except one stainless steel one. The loppers were the worst!
Then I found a brand new bottle of deoxidene in my cupboard, which I don't remember buying but I probably bought for this! lol
Anyway, the label, having gotten wet was not entirely clear so I just soaked it in pure deoxidene then scrubbed and they all came clean with the exception of my panga. Was that right? I do have a residue on my tools - yellowish powder.
I wonder if there is anything more environmentally friendly and less toxic to me? Also I hope in the future I won't have quite such bad problems if I care for my tools better.
Now I need to sharpen everything and and I am going to start learning on my panga when I get a whetstone. Any suggestions as to brand/grit for garden tools?
