Sometimes, just sometimes, something wonderful emerges from the cooking pot!
|1.||Take a piece of calico, a few rusty items and a handful of leaves from the garden.|
|2.||Lay everything out on the calico, wrap fabric and contents up in a bundle and tie tightly with string.|
|3.||Pop into an old cooking pot with a handful of tea bags and some water.|
|4.||Simmer gently for half an hour.|
|5.||Remove from pot and leave to cool overnight.|
|6.||Open package, rinse well and leave to neutralise in soda ash solution for a few hours.|
|7.||Rinse well, hang out to dry and finally iron.|
