    You are not following the instructions. As for the boots, they are talking about NEW boots not taking polish well, most likely because there is wax on them, NOT cleaning dirty boots. They are also talking about soft sandwich bread that at one time didn't come sliced. You are slicing a hard crusted bread with a serrated knife. I could go on but I'm getting tired.

  • Uwe Schroeder

    I doubt the milk trick works. You ended up just scraping the fabric off.
    Milk and ink have changed over the years. Ballpen ink is nothing like real ink from a fountain pen and the real ink today is chemically completely different. Back in the day ink was made from natural ingredients - it faded and blotched. Today ink is more like a stain or paint - so entirely different and probably not soluble to enzymes and fat (where today's milk has neither in abundance since we pasteurize and degrease milk)

  • Lady Gray

    Milk is great to whiten dirty white shoe laces, but today's ink is different than 100 years ago. Try good old fashioned rubbing alcohol instead. Rub or spray it on, then wash. Repeat before drying, if necessary.

    The potato hack with the roses is also used to propagate a new rose bush. Cut the stem at 45° angle then insert in potato. You can then plant the potato/rose stem in a pot or direct in the ground. I think they will grow on the counter too.

    Regarding the ink stain on the t-shirt......The milk 100 years ago was NOT pasteurized by companies. The people were drinking fresh raw milk from the cow so all the elements in the milk would be able to lift the stains. It makes sense that MODERN milk would NOT pull the ink stain out completely.

  • sniperwolfjs
    sniperwolfjs 20 days ago

    On the first one with the nail. You need a bigger hammer. You don't have enough leverage with a short hammer.

  • Randy Patterson

    You said you let the ink "stand" but the instructions said immediately place in milk.

    Ink 100 years ago was liquid, not paste (like your basic BIC) or gel. Think more fountain pen ink, especially iron gall ink. The old milk trick works with that.

    I disagree with your hack for a level using the label of a bottle with some liquid in it. You seem to be making the claim that by getting the liquid to line up with the label's edge that it will mean the picture (or whatever else you're using it on) will hang level. The problem with this method is that it assumes the edge of the label is parallel to the bottom of the bottle. If it's not, the picture won't hang level.

    This is bogus millennial hustle. No doubt perpetrated by "Gallaher Ltd.", the makers of the "100 year old" cards found in the PLASTIC BAG "buried" in the yard. As several commenters note, some of these "hacks" don't work well because the materials (ink, milk, leather, etc.) are not what they were 100 years ago. As for the nail pulling: any real carpenter would grab the nail with the claw of the hammer at the wood and lay the hammer over sideways. Presto! MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE wins again. A concept barely grasped by our young demonstrator.

    New bread I'm sure they mean bread that was just made. The video shows bread that is at least a day old! Fresh bread will smush down when you try to cut it. Not a very good example!!

    @ approx. 8:40'ish Those boots were not grungy. the soles showed no vigorous wear. "last worn in the Nevada desert years ago". yeah, right, you got out of your A/C'ed SUV, took some photos, went back to the hotel, then the pool, hit the bar, then wrote up this account.
    I've been a traffic control flagger for over 13 yrs. I am familiar with "grungy boots". (Those looked like nice boots, they appeared to be like an LL BEAN product). Why are you even wearing boots? Trotters would be more comfy.
    My boots were working boots. Good quality boots would give me 2 years, then, w/a resole, 1 more year. I did not care about getting them prepped for polishing. Drivers don't give a s**t about polished boots.

    The boots in this video,(in my opinion)are virgins, they have not seen any real use. A damp rag would have sufficed.(Why waste a good lemon?).
