Vinegar is amazing!

Our friend Adam clued us in to the hardware on the attic door. He said it was unique, and that we should clean up the metal and continue to use it.

So, I unscrewed the plates, and brought them home. I soaked them in paint cleaner overnight. But that did nothing except stink up the garage. Experimenting, I put them in plain vinegar for about an hour. Lo and behold, that old paint peeled right off! Look what was underneath!

I need to polish them, I guess. Any ideas? I think its brass.

  1. Vinegar IS amazing… We also use it in our laundry with towels or anything that could potentially be a little smellier.
