A Good Day At the Thrift Store!

February 22, 2008 at 11:13 am 2 comments


So I was at the Salvation Army thrift store today, and I scored a case of Grolsh swing-top bottles for $8 thanks to my lovely wife seeing them hiding out in the corner! I love using these for bottling, the only problem is they are so nice I can’t bring myself to give them away…I’ve got them in the sink soaking with bleach now. I usually don’t like to use bleach, but I was in need of a strong cleaner/sanitizer, and you can’t beat bleach for the price. They were pretty nasty, but I’ll let them soak overnight and hit them with the bottle washer and they’ll be good as new…

    Nice work. I sometimes see these bottles at thrift stores for $3 each. Good eyes Kara!

    Just a thought, isn’t bleach bad for the seals?
