ever tried hardware soup

This recipe is for what I call “ Hardware Soup “. It’s definitely not something you eat BUT it’s a recipe you’ll want to make again and again!



Start by grabbing some distilled white vinegar, some fine grit steel wool, a wire brush, and Bar Keepers Friend ( in either the powder or liquid form ). You’ll need a boiling pot but I would suggest grabbing an old one you don’t use for food OR even getting one from the thrift shop.

The first step is to fill your boiling pot with enough water so that when you place your hardware in it the water will cover it ( typically an inch or two depending on the pot and the hardware. Next, you’ll want to add equal parts vinegar.
