Day 12 of 100 Days

So, just how bad can an iron be, before it is unsavable. I have dug this one out of the bottom of the garden shed, and I cannot read one word on it. I suspect, because of the handle, that it is another Salters #6, only with the flat end, but I am not yet sure.


It is currently sitting in a bath of 10:1 water and vinegar.

Back in 24 hours. Then we will see.

But, even if I can save it, and even though I sew on a 1918 hand-operated Singer, nothing will make me give up my steam iron. It just helps me appreciate antique linen even more.
