Bill's bells after Oxyclean
« on: October 15, 2009, 03:26:10 AM »
Oxyclean results on some bells Phonesrfun sent me.  I didn't get a before pic except for the underside of one, but the bells looked the same both sides.  Before and after a couple of hours with 1/2 scoop of Oxyclean in about 8 ounces of hot tap water, followed by a handwashing with dish soap.

The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Wow, Greg, that's almost enough to make me want to ask for them back! ;D  Just kidding, of course.  Excellent.

Oxyclean makes the bells look like NOS, which I like better than the Brasso bells that sparkle like a new gold coin.

I use Tarnex, it takes away the tarnish, but doesn't make them shiney. I think exactly like they were when new. They would have no reason whatsoever to polish the ringers.
