It has been quite a 'red' September so far! We have had a delightful influx of pictures of Caret cookers, spruced up for the winter months.This is our first Pillar Box Red of the month. Here we have a lovely set of photos of Helen's cleaning efforts. Thank you Helen!
Now you lovely lot, here is a task for you! Helen has inherited this spectacular range (Pre'74 solid fuel conversion to gas), in amazing condition considering its age, with a house move. She has tenderly cleaned it, and is now a little more attached to it. But she still needs fully converting to its merits! Hopefully a warm winter by its side will help, but can you offer some words of encouragement to help her along?
"Spent 4 hours cleaning this today! Thanks to @blakeandbull for the amazing kit and instructions, without which I would have been clueless. SOOOOOO, after all of that, I do like it a bit more and am excited to get it serviced and turned on next week. And then get it re-enamelled if we like it..."
Votes for Red to Cream? Or Pistachio!? Helen is just starting on her renovation journey of her lovely Edwardian home! I am enjoying seeing her progress so far.
Great use of the paste here, not too liberal and evenly spread. It pays to be methodical with this, then step away whilst it does its good work!
I just adore Pillar Box Red, especially when it shines like this! ❤️
