After waiting for the WD-40 to work its magic, you’re now able to wipe up any excess product with a paper towel. Be mindful that no product has made its way onto the hammer’s handle, as this can be a slipping risk.
Finally, you can admire your steel hammers head that looks just like new!
Tip: After completing these steps, ensure your hammer is stored in a clean area to prevent getting it mucky. You may want to give your tool box a wipe down just to be on the safe side. As a matter of fact, your hammer head needs to be thoroughly dry before storing away, as wet tools build moisture, which could then form into rust.
