I thought cool, till I found the hand crank coffee grinders ... then for some reason it gave me a chill.

About canning jars....how do I get the rust stains off? Any simple ideas on how to do this? I thought I read somewhere about soaking them in vinegar water overnight......

I soak them in vinegar water overnight and any leftover stains I just take a bit of baking soda on a washcloth and rub the stains off.. works like a charm. The baking soda trick works on coffee mugs that have tea and coffee stain on them too.
I have also used it to remove rust stains on my stainless steel silverware.

I use a steel wool soap pad on the awful stains that won't soak off. Works like a charm.

Since this came back up....
Went to another auction Saturday. Got 3 "box lots" of jars. A total of 65 jars; about half with rings. A mix of qt. and pt. $4.25.

There are jars at almost every estate auction we go to and I rarely have anyone bid against me for them unless they are the old blue ones. I don't bid on those since it's usually someone looking for that elusive rare jar and they run the price up. Only thing I care about is functionality.

Recently went to estate sale... couldn't believe what they were asking for the jars. plain everyday ball jars $2 EACH, and commercial food jars $1 EACH. I said those ball jars available in the stores complete with lids and everything for $10/12. She said, they are antique ball jars and worth a lot more... not to me

When my parents bought this house it had a box of the old glass lidded bail wired canning jars in clears and the greens and blue colors. I asked mom what she ever did with them and she told me that she thought she left them here? So looking around the spider filled Michigan basement(if you live here you know what I mean lol) and sure nuff there is about 10 or 12 of them in a box down there.. I have the rubber rings(hubs bought me the new fancy (not canning) type and I got rings for those) so will have to talk hubby into bringing them up and killing the wildlife so I can scrub them and start using them for my herbs or baking supplies. Plus in the box next to them are 8 1/2 gallon mason jars... teach me not to check the spooky spider haven that is called my basement!
