I really like to try and hit charity based thrift stores more than retail because I know that even the smallest amount goes to programs to help others who aren't as blessed as I am.
I picked up this suitcase for $2 at the bargain bin outlet.
(as you can see, it's in my bathtub)
Its an early 60's Royal Traveler, which was a division of Samsonite. Its hard to tell from the photo above but its pretty grody and grimy. What do I expect for such a cheap price, eh?
Here are some close up shots:
Thats 50+ years of travel grime.
I purchased some KABOOM foaming cleaner to get the ball rolling on getting some of this dirt off.
It sprays on purple...
Starts to turn white as its ready to scrub...
Brusha brusha brusha
How does it look? That's for tomorrow's post! So far so good, though I may need to hit it a few more times with the cleaner and scrubby.
