Sometimes it can be easier to think about purchasing items that have little upkeep. A slight bit of dusting here or there never hurt anyone, but items that involve polishing or buffing — well that just seems like work. It doesn't have to with this quick and simple tip. You might remember Jules, the Super-Hero-DIY mom over at Pancakes and French Fries, who took matters into her own hands when she entered her living room, only to find her couches had been covered in red Sharpie Marker. Her couches are now stain free and she's tipped us off to another great project... kicking tarnish to the curb.
All it takes is a little baking soda, salt and aluminum foil stirred into a bowl of warm water and you're tarnished goods will be good as new. There's a small bit of rubbing involved, make sure to check out all the details over at Pancakes and French Fries, but all in all, this is a simple DIY to salvage any thrift store or heirloom find!
