Jar Cleaning with BBs

Clean up old jars with ... BBs?

I’ve gone to auctions for years and have collected lots of antique jars and bottles. Often they’ve been stained inside, and they used to be really tough to get clean. Not anymore! I just put a little soapy water in the bottle and add a few tablespoons of BBs. After a bit of soaking and several shakes, the bottles come clean. I’ve also used the same method to clean peanut butter and jam jars. By rinsing and drying the BBs afterward, I can reuse them. Just remember to keep them out of the sink and away from small children and pets! — Connie DeHaven
