I live in a damp climate, so rust, mold. etc. are a constant. Some of my Craftsman hand tools develop a crusty white mold as shown. This doesn’t seem to damage the tools at all. It can be scraped off with a thumbnail revealing smooth, clean, clear plastic underneath. However it is unsightly, smells bad and, in the main, ought not to be there.
If anyone has a solution for a.) removing this stuff without having physically to scrape it off and b.) something the handles can be coated with to prevent its development in the first place, I’d like to know what it is.
