With Thanksgiving next week, I’m in a mad dash to get this house clean. I am making good progress but still have a way to go, especially upstairs. As I was scrubbing my stainless steel sink with Barkeepers Friend, I picked up a small hotel silver cream pitcher that sits by the sink. It was black with tarnish and I was simply going to leave the tarnish and wipe off the dust. Boy was I surprised when the tarnish came off too! I had never thought of using it to remove tarnish.
Then I had a great idea. I decided to try it on the brass handrail on the back stairs. Boy was it the trick!
As you can see in this “before” picture, it certainly needed a good polishing. I assembled my cleaning supplies: an old t-shirt, Barkeepers Friend, and a spray bottle of water to dampen the t-shirt.
I dampened the t-shirt and sprinkled on a little Barkeepers Friend. Then I gave a gentle wipe or two.
Can you see the shine coming through? It took a little elbow grease, but I soon had it clean.
It was much quicker than the product I have used in the past.
Let’s take a side by side look.
I love it when I have a bright idea!
I hope you are having a great week preparing for the holidays!
And, there’s still time to order Bethlehem Christmas Dinnerware!
