Many homeowners own several tools and fasteners at home for DIY home improvement projects. But, since you have to store them in your garage or shed, heat and humidity can take their toll, causing rust. Here are some ways you can prevent rusty tools and ensure their longevity.
- Apply a protective coating such as wax to keep metal tops rust-free
- Avoid getting your tools wet, especially when you use them outside
- Clean off rusty tools with sandpaper or fine steel wool
- Store your tools properly, e.g. keep your bolts in an airtight container
