Removing Rust From Tools

Remove rust from garden tools with steel wool dipped in kerosene or turpentine. Then oil the tools lightly to prevent the rust from forming again.

Not sure if I want to use kerosene, how about just steel wool? Will that do it?

Steelwool, or even the plastic pan-scourers are good. In Britain, it gets called "Scotchbrite" even if they're another brand. Don't use kerosene, petrol, or any other solvents unless you wear latex/rubber gloves. Solvents and fuels won't do your hands any good.

After cleaning, a wipe down with an oily cloth is good, again, wear gloves.

You want to remove rust from the steel. Use my method for it i.e. hold tight. It delivers an exceptionally clean.
