Cleaning Garden Tools

I have a number of gardening tools that need a good cleaning and de-rusting. Can any one out there give me some ideas? The more organic, the better! Thanks.

I have heard that WD40 will remove rust . also that after your tools are clean keep them in a bucket of sand ( plunged into the sand) to keep clean Anyone else heard of this? WD40 is a natural product.

CLR works well and is enviroment friendly. Yes they say a bucket of sand with some oil in it wil keep them from rusting. For heavy rust a wire wheel on a drill will clean things up in a hurry, the drill does the hard work for you.

Bucket of sand with any oily product will help a lot. Naval Jelly will be good if heavily rusted, to start with, then the oily sand routine.
