I love cleaning!

Okay, maybe not my house, but I love cleaning my vintage finds! There's so much I love about selling vintage! First of all, I've always loved antiques and vintage items! Second, the hunt is so much fun! And then, getting my treasures home and cleaning them up to bring new life back to these beautiful neglected pieces!

I have a few of my favorite cleaning products at hand at all times! The most basic is good old fashioned dishwashing liquid! I start by cleaning the item with that and then see if there are any spots still left. One of my favorite products is "Bar Keepers Friend", it's safe for just about everything from stainless steel to fine porcelain, and it usually does the trick at getting those stubborn stains removed!

For those darn price stickers I love "Goo Gone"! It works pretty effortlessly.

I always finish, again, with a good old fashioned cleaning with dishwashing liquid.
I wish all cleaning was this much fun!
And remember, if you don't have the time or energy to hunt for fun vintage, but you love it, just visit my shops http://www.jenscloset.etsy.com/ http://www.mymilkglassshop.etsy.com/ and http://www.thechinagirl.etsy.com/ (I still haven't figured out how to make a link to these without typing the whole thing out-if anyone can help me with this, I'd appreciate it!)

Happy cleaning!

What beautiful stuff! I'm so inspired now to get out there and do some garage sale foraging! I too LOVE BKF and Goo Gone - GREAT, useful and effective products! Bizy Mamma's Kitchen wouldn't be without them :)
