“Making Shiny” Cedar Park, 2021

Today we did a bunch of clean-up at our house, including selling some items on Facebook Marketplace, mowing the yard, gardening on the deck, and gathering things for a Goodwill drop-off. We also tried out a new ultrasonic cleaner for Mariko’s jewelry. I threw in my high school class ring, and it came out nice and shiny! Also, my glasses were super-clean. It was a big gross to see how much gunk came out from that. I clean the lenses every couple of days but I guess the hinges and other parts of the glasses were filled with dirt. Yuck!

In the afternoon I spent a little time working on my bicycle restoration project. It’s a lot of fun! I took some steel wool to the seat post and it cleaned up nicely. I also worked a bit on one of the wheels, and cleaned a few other parts. I’m going to need some proper polishing compound for the other metal parts, and I am looking forward to seeing them shine. 😀
