How do I restore vintage Kromex spun aluminum canisters?
I have a pink Kromex canister set and a black Kromex cookie jar and spice shaker set. I want to restore them; the spun aluminum is tarnished and the pink plastic is yellowed. How do I restore them? What kind of paint should I use for the lettering? Etc, etc...
Alumabright is pretty expensive, heres a cheaper way to do it.
Try a good liquid polish for the metal.
You cant restore old plastic.
I would repaint the whole plastic lid with Krylon Fusion Plastic paint. Then paint over the letters, you could probably even use model paint for the letters. All of that stuff can be bought at any store that has a "Mart" in its name.
