Garden Tool Blades Sticky- Cleaning

Q: My garden tool blades get sticky at times when I make cuts. What’s the best thing to clean them with?

A: I use WD-40 to unstick my pruners. But WD-40 is a penetrant, not a permanent lubricant so I then spray with a silicone lubricant. If possible, disassemble your pruners beforehand and scrub the blades with steel wool.
