Remember this from my rusty tool post?
It now looks like this after a good soak in the vinegar/water mixture and a bit of mineral oil. I did have to soak this shovel for a couple of days, it was so rusty. I probably should have sanded it a little bit before soaking it, that may have helped to remove the rust faster.
Almost like new!
The bucket I had this in wasn’t deep enough to get the neck of the shovel, so I just sanded it down. In the future I will get this into a deeper bucket to clean up the rest of the rust on the neck.
