Well, an amazing “cleaning” before and after…lol…
Just wanted to take a little break to share this with you:
Today my mom asked me if I’d be interested in a tea server set? (I guess that’s what you call it) that a friend had just given her. She said she just didn’t have anywhere to put it and thought I might would like to have it to set out in my dining room. Normally, I’d tell her no, because I just have too much stuff laying around as it is, but something told me to say yes this time. I told her to bring it on down and I’d check it out. Even as tarnished as it was, I thought it was very pretty. After reading the partial sticker on the bottom that said “Solid Bra” I kind of figured it meant solid brass…lol. So after searching the internet to find out how to clean brass, I tried 3 things: Worcestershire sauce, tobasco sauce, and ketchup. Out of the 3, the Worcestershire sauce worked the best.
This picture shows best how tarnished all of the pieces were:
And even though I’m not finished yet, I wanted to show you some afters:
I doubt that it’s an antique or anything, but Isn’t it pretty? Look at that design on there! I can’t wait to get it all finished! Ok, break is over…must get off of here and finish up.
Catch ya later!
