Martin likes to collect things, squirrelling them away for many a year before finally finding a use for them. It used to drive me mad when we were renting houses and moving around a lot, especially the array of water sport,s and climbing gear that we never quite had enough room for.
Over the years this ‘collecting’ has extended to tools as well. We have never had much spare money so when it came to buying tools Martin would either buy them second hand or end up purchasing something cheap from the shop which inevitably wasn’t quite up to the job. Amongst these purchases were some very rusty tools, probably a rummaged prize from someone’s garage that I am sure I was very vocal about at the time. I guess after years of my complaining it was probably time for him to prove me wrong and to do it in style by using a natural cleaning recipe to give those rusty tools a new lease of life; don’t worry the irony hasn’t been lost on me!
