OK.Why do you need to do that? Just use a rouge cloth on the exterior of the lock if it is tarnishing.
Yeah, I'd love to see Claude's face when you tell him about the cat pee on the lock. He's probably heard worse, but still. Those darn cats pick the worst places to ahem, answer the call, don't they.Not sure I followed all of that. Cat pee on the lock? LOL! Just wipe off the outside, doubt it managed to find the way inside. It would be an interesting story to tell the craftsman at the boutique Ha Ha!
Encore, that is a darn good idea. There's nothing worse that cat urine, especially if it's male cat urine. That stuff can disolve paint!At least the bag was not in the basket.....
I would buy a new lock. Cat might be inclined to use bag like litter box or spray on it if it smells the tiniest residual. Plus C. urine is nasty strong stuff and might be eating away at the finish as we speak so it is done anyway.
Cat ladies, what would happen if you buried the lock in kitty litter? Would it take away the smell?
