How do I keep my tool handles looking great?

Polish Up Your Handles

When doing your fall tool cleaning chores, don't forget to check wooden handles for splinters, nicks and wear. To keep them at their best and to prevent them from drying out over the winter, you should:

* Sand any splinters or rough edges to smooth the handles.

* Wash them in soapy water and dry them off.

* Rub them with linseed oil, tung oil, beeswax or orange wax to provide extra protection to the wood.
