I picked this rusty fire pit out of the bowels of trash hell! I wanted to use it outdoors as a hanging light or fill it with sedum as a vertical garden. But in order for it to not
eventually disintegrate, I had to do some restoration.
You can do this with anything rusty that you want to be able to use but not have it continue to rust. This process is sooo simple! See the pictures for explanation and then get to it! I can NOT decide if I still want to use it outdoors or if I want to use it inside as my kitchen light! If I transform it further, I'll let you know
I brought out my summer sandals and found that the suede insoles were very soiled looking. See below.
I remembered my mother saying that you could clean suede with sandpaper. I thought, 'Wow, that's weird' and it stuck in my head. So I tried it!
Guess what? It WORKS!!
Has anyone ever tried this?
I think it will work on any brushed leather (suede)... but be careful when trying this... try an inconspicuous place first. In my case, it didn't matter because I was ready to throw these sandals out. So whether I ruined them, it didn't matter. But it worked!!! YAY!
