Cleaning Vintage Milk Glass Vases

At the peak of the Wedding season, Brides to Be are often looking for those last minute accents. Although it feels like you have everything, you continue to look for that inspired piece. And then, it happens.

What if you were to stumble across 100 milk glass vases that were perfect for your Vintage themed Wedding ? Only one catch… they are all terribly filthy inside. This actually happened to a friend of mine. She is secretly the inspiration for one of my most popular YouTube videos “How to Clean Vintage Milk Glass”.

This quick tip, saved us hours. It is very useful for those of us who do not have a dishwasher or would prefer not to use one. What I love about this tip, is that it’s so simple. It requires very little in the way of preparation and works every time like a charm.

Milk glass has quite the collectible following. It’s easily found at thrift stores and antique shops. You can even mix and match it with brass or silver-plate. It would also look great en masse on a head table. Have I given you enough ideas ?

Later you can use them as part of your come decor. Vintagehomecolleen of Australia who I follow on Instagram, always does a fantastic job sharing her collection in use. I am a firm believer in using your vintage home decor collectibles.
