Every experienced gardener knows that you need to clean your tools to keep from spreading diseases to your plants. But bleach is not the best solution for this. Prolonged contact with bleach can pit, discolor, or corrode the metal of gardening tools. Not only that, but if it's not completely rinsed off, bleach residue on tools can damage the tissue of your plants and trees. Yes, you do need to clean and disinfect your tools, but use a household cleaner like Lysol for the job. It’s safer for your plants than bleach, and it's noncorrosive.
