How To Clean Copper...And Peony Love

Peonies are in full bloom right now and we all love them! I was thrilled to find them available at Trader Joes this morning when I went in to do my grocery shopping for the week, as they are more affordable there. Today I'm sharing a cleaning tip though, and I have been...
doing way too much of that with the remodel that I told you about on the previous post. My poor hands and don't even mention manicure.
Tucked away in a corner of that apartment were some pieces of copper that had seen better days in terms of sheen.

I do love a mix with a little bit of bling, but they were so grimy and it looked as though someone made an attempt to clean them in the past with a lot of streaking. They are pitted from life by the sea, but I don't mind that. I do however mind dirt.

This piece is quite large and could be used to hold umbrellas, magazines, or flowers (of course:-).

Before I set to clean the pot holding the gorgeous peonies, they color was like the giant handled bucket that I've yet to work on. Rather dull...rather bleh.

A little bit of elbow grease with one of my favorite cleansers and if you haven't tried it and have any metal in your home then you should...Bar Keepers Friend. I use it on my stainless steel sink, handle sets and boy oh boy did we use up a ton of it in that condo clean-up! Just a wet paper towel or sponge and a bit of scrubbing does the trick.

This is not a paid or sponsored post, I'm just sharing a product that I love. You can find Bar Keepers Friend at most grocery stores and more peony ideas coming soon.
