Learn how to prevent tools from rusting with coal with this easy trick: add pieces of coal in the bottom of your toolbox.
You can prevent tools from rusting with coal by simply inserting coal pieces in your toolbox.
Ladies and gentlemen, I stumbled onto this one somewhere and thought I'd give it a try. Prevent tools from rusting with coal, put a couple of chunks of coal in the toolbox.
