Hand tools and power tools should be cleaned regularly to avoid dust. With proper cleaning and maintenance, you can extend the life of your tools and make sure they don't rust. Where it is very easy to clean hand tools, power tools need a finer touch. They cannot be washed with soap and water, as both can penetrate the gap when the tool is inserted. To remove rust from tools, you must first degrease them. Apply a coat of coating to the tool and wait five minutes to remove the grease. Wipe off the grease with a lint-free cloth and reapply the degreaser. Now wipe stubborn stains with steel wool and rinse the tool with water. You can also consult a fixing and power tool center.
