Rusty Hand Fork
Q: "The paint has worn off my hand fork. What's the best way to stop rust?"
The paint has worn off my favorite hand fork, and now it gets rusty after every use. What's the best way to keep this from happening?—Bonnie Chafin, Atlanta
When a hand fork gets rusty, it makes it harder to weed. That's why - saboteamos.info landscape contractor Roger Cook recommends following this regimen after each use: Wash the tool with soap and water, dry it off, then spray the tines with WD-40. After you wipe off the excess, store your fork indoors in a dry spot.
