    Czechy is right. I have used 'Brasso' or 'Silvo' to clean cones. It is very time consuming and kind of a pain really. Doesn't really get them looking "new" but it does help. I made a dress once for my lil cuzin, her parents asked me if I wanted them to get her new cones, and I told them no, I'd jus do the 'silvo' thing on the ones that they had as they were a little strapped fer cash at the time - boy did I regret that! Horrible job! But I'm glad I was able to help them out.
    Honestly......It would be a whole lot easier jus to get new cones - cleanin them suckz!

    I've never tried it myself but I've heard of people using Brasso or Turtle Wax. Even so, it sounds like a lotta work and could be messy.

    Do you give your children an allowance? Should we pay our children allowances or not? If so how much and what do you consider too much?

    I've nerer had any trouble before, but then I always made 2 pc soft soles before... Man, that is tough nerve-racking work! I can't even imagine if I had beaded the uppers first! I made them rather tight fitting, and the soles were the stiffest latigo I could find, because my friend lives in Arizona...

    Making Jingles
    by Dancing Butterfly
    I've been trying to make my own jingles out of rolled aluminum. I'm having a hard time making them even on the bottom and top. I've tried grabbing the whole edge and rolling, grabbing the bottom more than the top and rolling or visa versa with the top. They should be stepped like they are. Is there...
