A sand-filled trough will keep small garden tools from vanishing—and keep them in good working order.
You Will Need:
- Galvanized container, tub, or bucket
- Motor oil
- Fill a trough or other container with sand to 1 inch from top.
- Pour in about 1/4 cup of motor oil (sand should have a slightly moist texture); stir.
- Stick tools face-down in the sand. The sand will keep them clean and sharp, while the oil will keep them rust-free. When returning tools to trough, wipe them with a rag first.
