묵은 때가 있는 집기를 새것 같이 만드려면 : Turn Old Looking Things Into New Once Again


You most probably have a couple of things around the house that are old, or things you most likely love that you wish would look as good as new again. Thankfully, with these secrets, your old-looking items will look brand new once again! 
1. Chopping boards

For copper pots to look as good as new again, sprinkle the surface with salt, then pour a little bit of vinegar over it, rubbing it with a hard sponge.

Got scratches on your plates? Use a polish designed specifically for use on porcelain.



4. Baking trays

Prepare a solution made of one part vinegar and two parts water. Mix the water and vinegar together in a spray bottle and spray on the stain, covering with a damp cloth. Then, set your iron onto steam mode and place it over the cloth for 30 seconds. 



6. Cast-iron pans
For cast-iron pans you will need a disinfectant, some gloves, garbage bags and white vinegar and follow these instructions:
• Spread a thick layer of the disinfectant on the old cast-iron pan. 
• Put the pan in a garbage bag and tie it up tightly. 
• Leave the pan in the bag for 1-2 days then rinse off the disinfectant. 
• Apply a new layer of the same liquid and put it in a tightly knotted bag for one day. 
• Wash off the dirt with hot water. 
• Soak the pan in a mixture of warm water and vinegar (1:1) for an hour and scrub the surface with a scouring pad. 
• Let the pan dry. 
• Preheat the oven to 250C, putting the pan in it for an hour. 
• Carefully remove the hot frying pan and apply a layer of olive oil all over it.
• The hot metal will absorb the required amount of oil - wipe off the residue with a clean, dry cloth and once again, put the pan in the oven, this time upside down. 
• Take it out after 15 minutes, wipe with a cloth and place it in the oven again for an extra 15 minutes. Repeat for another two times.



7. Tiles
