Here’s the basic cleaning supplies that I use for freshening up thrifty vintage purchases. The video posted below demonstrates how I give new life to dirty and dingy enamel ware, milk glass, and grubby bisque ornaments.
It’s well worth your time to give the icky items a good look to see if there is something beautiful under that layer of dirt. One example from today is a vintage Pyrex mixing bowl that I picked up today for $2.50 – a wildly inexpensive price. (I’ll show it off in my next thrift haul video!)
At the end of the video, I’m trying to decide whether to leave the enamel coffee pot “as is” or whether I should let it stand with a bleach solution in it. Well, I’m glad I made the effort – the interior of the pot is sparkling!
