Tipsy Tuesday (#168)

The Rev is a ketchup eating machine, so it is always on hand at our house...

Tip #168

which works out well, if I need to polish any copper.

Did you know that you can shine small copper items by dipping a cotton swab in ketchup and applying it to the object? Just wipe off, then polish with a cotton cloth. It worked like a charm on one of my favorite bracelets!

**Alright now, I'm talking tips, head over to see what Impulsive and Shawn are talking about on Talk to us Tuesday!**

I'll have to try this on my copper bottom pans.

Shawn said...

I don't own anything copper but if I did and it needed polishing I'd be trouble since I cannot stand the smell of ketchup!

Thanks for linking up, you know I just love your tips!

Ketchup is good, and a lemon will work too, especially on those copper bottom pans.

I have a small problem with ketchup. I don't like it. The smell makes me gag. And M doesn't like it either but Emma does....no thanks to my sister in law for making the introduction. I can handle mustard. Why can't she like mustard instead? Ketchup reminds me of blood. I don't like blood. Is this too much info?

Oooooh! This is something I did not know - and I have a lot of copperware that are waiting for when we move next year and get a house with a bigger/better kitchen...so I can hang them nicely. I'll totally be breaking out the ketchup and polishing them up! :)
