I can't believe I forgot to tell you all about my weekend! I rummaged through an abandoned home in the middle of nowhere this past Saturday, and stumbled upon a bit of a gold mine... if you consider vintage glassware to be gold.

Yes, that's right! I scored a few old soda bottles from the local junkyard and they couldn't be cooler. Only problem? I was having the hardest time ridding the interior glass of mold and other grimy build-up.

Luckily, a friend suggested I use denture-cleaning tablets to dissolve the grime, and I honestly had my doubts. Wow. Boy, was I wrong! The tablets instantly melted away the grease, grime and mold... leaving spotless soda bottle vases that are sure to make a splash the next time I host a dinner party.

Incredible! I ran the glassware through one cycle of the dishwasher and they look brand new. Here's to double duties -- denture style!
