thrift love thursday :: 07.01.2010

{thrift love thursday will be a (hopefully) regular feature. i plan on sharing one or some of my favorite thrifty finds each week. i hope you enjoy them!}

when i found this great chrome knapp monach therm-a-jug one gallon thermos, i reached for the handle and my hand stuck to it. it was in pretty grim shape: layers of grime, an unknown sticky substance, and years of garage dust. but for only $1.99, i recognized its potential and rolled up my sleeves for a bit of hard scrubbing.

do you know of the awesome power of magic erasers? if not, please buy one toute suite. they’re like… uh, magic (for lack of a better word), especially on vintage items with aged stains. scrubbing with a magic eraser is crazy satisfying. it took a few rounds, but eventually, the chrome was gleaming on this 1950s thermos.
