How do you clean pliers?

When you want to clean pliers, make sure that you have oil (not cooking oil), rag and the pliers that you are cleaning. You may want to work above a piece of newspaper.

Then open the pliers and put oil at the top, sides and front. Wait for five minutes and clean with sand paper.

Answer There is nothing wrong with using cooking oil for lubing tools if you have to -it's better than nothing.
