Garden Tool Container

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2006


  • Sand

  • Motor oil

  • Rag


  1.  Fill a trough or other small container with sand to 1 inch from top.

  2. Pour in about 1/4 cup of motor oil (sand should have a slightly moist texture); stir.

  3. When returning tools to trough, wipe them with a rag. The sand will keep tools clean and sharp, and the oil will keep them rust-free.
