Hi, I'm a new engineer who works with your standard set of fresh concrete tests (slump cone, cylinders, sometimes air). I have a kit (tampers, trowel, scoop, bucket) I carry around when driving to job sites and wanted to know if anybody has any tips for best practices to maintain them. I know it's impossible to have pristine tools, but I wanna make sure they last. Obviously cleaning and drying them after working with any cements can go a long way. Does anybody have any experiences with degreasers or acid-based tool cleaners? I'm worried about corrosion with the latter in particular.
