Rubbing it the right way

I was knee deep into writing another post on another topic when I looked at the date and realized...

It's August's Bestest Housewifely Doodad day!

I saved my other post as a draft. Half my posting labors are done for tomorrow. Woo!

I hadn't prepared at all for it being doodad day. It snuck up on me. How dare it? I cannot disappoint my readers and other hangers on with my surprising absent minded avoidance of the doodad.

After much walking about my house I've come upon the winner. August's Bestest Housewifely Doodad is...

Wright's Copper Cream!

The success of any housewife can be measured by how mellow-ly her copper bottomed pots and pans gleam in the flourescent light of her spotless kitchen.


So, OK, I get around to shining my copper bottomed pots when I'm feeling especially energenic. The best part is that Wright's Copper Cream makes the work so easy. I don't know what's in the stuff but the moment it hits my copper bottomed pots the pots get all shiny and stuff. Afterwards I feel triumphant and clever.

To use you make sure the copper is warm to hot by rinsing it with hot water, then apply the cream liberally with the nifty hexagon shaped sponge included. Mush the cream around, polishing thoroughly, and using a little more muscle action on the dirtier bits. Rinse. There is no offensive chemical smell and no need to wear rubber... gloves that is.

Your copper will look as pretty as Muhammed Ali. Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

I'm unsure how much this stuff costs. I found several containers at a close out store for a dollar a piece. They've lasted me for several years. I'm fairly sure you can find Wright's Copper Cream at any fine Wallyworld type establishment. The close out store I bought mine from ran out.

Thank you Wright's Copper Cream (Since 1873), I like you, I really like you.


  1. Okay. But I don't have any copper bottomed pans. Does it work on pennies?

  2. sigh, now I just need some copper bottom pots. Do they come with a spotless kitchen or do I need one of those as well? Oh hell, forget it. I can't keep up.
