Clever Gardening Technique
Cooking Oil Spray
Keep a can of cooking oil spray in your garden shed. After you have finished working for the day and your tools are clean, give them a quick spray over the entire surface, blades, handles, and all! Give them a quick swipe with a rag before you head out to the garden next time. Keeping your tools oiled will help them last for many, many years!
