use a power washer ,if you have one or you can hire one then spray every thing in jeyes fluid, some tools you can paint with hammerite,

as long as theres no dirt or grass ect they will be ok rust is okay but get off the flaky bits,

we had everything steam cleaned by a company on our local industrial estate. But when we got here because they didn't give us a certificate for all the items that had been cleaned we were forced to us a MAF approved steam cleaner here - and his bill was huge!
I'd get it checked out before you do anything

I simply cleaned everything with warm soapy water and then painted them with hammerite. Once dry, wiped them with jeyes liquid, to make sure that they smelled 'clean'.

MAF were more than happy

All my trade tools, garage equipment, jacks and stands were wiped or sprayed with Jeyes, without issue. Anything that lived in the garden, got a good clean and hammerite to hide rust.


Jeyes is a wonder liquid that MAF love!
