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.
