Okay…so this isn’t an Endometriosis-related post, but something wonderful has happened and I need to share it with the world.
I woke up this morning feeling less-than-pretty. I was bloated, exhausted from a fitful sleep, and feeling a bit crampy. So what do I do? I went in search of some earrings to help make me feel pretty.
But…much to my dismay, they had tarnished. Like…a lot. Who cares. I wore them all day anyway.
I was going to stop at a jeweler on my way home, but figured I’d save some money and see how I can untarnish silver at home…Google to the rescue!
Take a bowl or a dish. Line it with aluminum foil, shiney side up. Add 3-4 tablespoons of regular salt (we only had sea salt). Bring some water ALMOSTto a boil and pour it into the dish. Let the salt dissolve for a few seconds. Plop in the tarnished jewelry. Wait 3 minutes (inhale over the bowl…sort of smells like eggs!!!). Retrieve the jewelry with a spoon and gently rinse in warm water. Dry with a soft cloth.
PRESTO! It worked! They’re like brand new!
So, I’m a little excited. And just wanted to share with you in case you’re mourning over a pair of tarnished earrings. And if a little pretty thing makes you feel better during the day, wear your pretty little thing. 😀
