I COLLECT RUSTY HARDWARE. DON'T ASK ME WHY. THIS $1 FLEA MARKET FIND HAD SEVERAL COATS OF PAINT RESIDUE. NOT THE MOST, BUT ENOUGH TO REQUIRE THIS  EASY PAINT REMOVAL METHOD.
YOU NEED: OLD POT, 1/4 C BAKING SODA, TONGS AND A 
SCREWDRIVER OR OLD TOOTHBRUSH

Place your item in boiling water & baking soda. Boil for 20-30 minutes,
depending upon how much paint is on the item.

IF PAINT PEELS OF EASILY, YOU ARE DONE, OTHERWISE RETURN TO POT



CAREFULLY USE A SMALL TOOL OR 
TOOTHBRUSH TO GENTLY REMOVE RESIDUE
