I have to admit, I’m having a hard time believing Thanksgiving has already come and gone!
And while many people are spending their post-Thanksgiving days shopping for the best holiday deal, I couldn’t help but look for ways to rejuvenate a few things I already own.
In the last several months, I have been looking at my collection of tarnished jewelry hanging from the wall. It was a sad sight. I finally decided it was time to give these favorites a fresh look.
Step 1: Line a glass baking dish with aluminum foil and lay your pieces inside.
Step 2: Boil enough tap water to cover all the pieces.
Step 3: Sprinkle the pieces with baking soda.
Step 4: Pour the boiling water over the baking soda covered pieces.
Step 5: Let the baking soda and water do their magic. Use a wooden spoon to move things around if you need to. The more each piece touches the aluminum foil, the cleaner it will get.
While the results are not perfect, and maybe we could have done better with a store-bought polish and LOTS of time polishing, I prefer the well-loved vintage look and we did it in record time with very little mess and with items from the pantry.
