Daily Wire Tip Nov. 27: Water Spots on Wire
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
November 27, 2010
I have wire that has water spots on it, is there anyway I can remove them, or is it useless now?
-Rose in St. Simons Island, Georgia
No Rose, your wire is not useless!
My suggestion is to keep a container of rubbing alcohol and a piece of tee shirt by your workspace. When you are straightening the wire for a project, dampen the tee shirt with the alcohol, and run the wire through it to remove the stains (instead of using a polishing cloth). Then use a polishing cloth.
I’m sure that some of our readers have had the same challenge, and will jump in with their experiences too!
