How to Age Wood (almost Instantly)
So, back to the clothes pin issue… I went and got a bag of new clothes pins, and simply dipped them in “magic juice” and once they dried, I had old, rusty clothespins to use on my pillow. And what is magic juice you ask?
Enjoyed the project?

I wonder if this magic juice in a spray bottle will work well on a new wooden fence piece that was replacing a broken old one and now stands out like a sore thumb. Gonna give it a shot ! Also power washed graffiti off of my stockade fencing in an area and think this will work well to age that area too.

I discovered that, if you drop your clothpins into the dirt and leave them in the rain for about 2 weeks, they look like that too..
No good if you want to use them to hang white sheets to dry.
And yes, here in Europe, most people don't use dryers but hang their washing outside. In my case, I work in holidayhomes and do the laundry of the sheets myself. I have to buy a lot of clothpins because the dirty ones leave marks on my laundry.
Somethimes we have Americans visiting us, my favorite guests. They always wonder why there are no dryers in our gîtes..

My Mother always hung our sheets out to dry. I do use my dryer for some of my other laundry but I do love to hang my sheets on the line to dry. About the only thing that I put in my dryer would be my heavy cotton towels. I just love the way that my laundry smells when its dried on the line. And I feel its much better on the fabric as well.
going to do this. Will it harm anything to let sun dry?
