Don’t throw out those used tea leaves! Save them for a safe and natural way to remove rust from your tools.
- Set aside used tea leaves, enough to make a bucket of tea. You’ll need enough tea to cover your tools. You can refrigerate the used leaves if you need a few days to collect enough.
- Place the tea leaves right in the bucket. Pour hot water inside the bucket. Make sure the bucket can hold hot water.
- Submerge your tools inside the bucket a few hours.
- Remove your tools, wipe them clean. Make sure to store them dry
