Sorting sounded like loads of fun to us, and the manager said anything we found that we wanted to buy we could set aside and purchase before we left.
I found these melamine dishes that were in terrible shape. They were all badly stained, had scratches, and some even looked like they had remnants of food. I liked the colors and shape of the bowls so I figured I’d just try and clean them. Before we left one of the ladies mentioned that her Mom always cleaned up stained melamine with bleach, so I thought I’d give it a try.
A quick soak in a water/bleach bath made these beauties look like new. I couldn’t believe it! I wish I had taken more before photos…but here is one to give you an idea how rough they looked.
