Clean copper quickly and if you inherit or come across thrift store pieces this is the best way!
Peonies are in full bloom right now and we all love them! I was thrilled to find them available at Trader Joes this morning when I went in to do my grocery shopping for the week, as they are more affordable there. Today I’m sharing a cleaning tip though, and I have been…
Tucked away in a corner of that apartment were some pieces of copper that had seen better days in terms of sheen.
I do love a mix with a little bit of bling, but they were so grimy and it looked as though someone made an attempt to clean them in the past with a lot of streaking. They are pitted from life by the sea, but I don’t mind that. I do however mind dirt.
This piece is quite large and could be used to hold umbrellas, magazines, or flowers (of course:-).
Before I set to clean the pot holding the gorgeous peonies, they color was like the giant handled bucket that I’ve yet to work on. Rather dull…rather bleh.
A little bit of elbow grease with one of my favorite cleansers and if you haven’t tried it and have any metal in your home then you should…Bar Keepers Friend. I use it on my stainless steel sink, handle sets and boy oh boy did we use up a ton of it in that condo clean-up! Just a wet paper towel or sponge and a bit of scrubbing does the trick. You can find Bar Keepers Friend at most grocery stores.
