I love heating up some painted door hardware on a Sunday afternoon, and since today we took the little bedroom door down for some r&r, I thought I’d get a head start on cleaning up the hardware:
I cranked our hardware-only crock pot up to high this time and used laundry detergent and hand soap in the water. After a few hours I fished this out:
The flatter the object, the easier the paint peels off:
Clean and ready for a polish and reinstall!
Sooo easy! I love this trick!
What do you use to polish the hardware? And, do you spray a clear coat of something before re-installing them?
Great question because I’m still looking for a good post-crockpot method. Last time I just used steel wool and called it a day but now I have a brass polish that I’ll probably use. Any tips are appreciated!
