Aloha Friday

It's Friday again and that means just one thing: it's time for Aloha Friday! Don't know what that is, go over An Island Life and see how this all works.



Meanwhile here's my question:

How do you lovely ladies sterilize the dishes you buy at thrift stores and flea markets???

I looked up on the internet and i saw that many restaurants do a solution that is 1 part bleach and 2 parts water and then let the dishes air dry. But bleach on the plates I'm planning to use for food sounds a wee bit scary to me. Then again, what happens if the dishes are pewter dishes?? How do you sterilize that then?? And also consider i don't own a dishwasher..* bummer i know *
I'm really looking forward for your answers, cause I'm really in a pickle with this one here!
Thanks a lot!


Oh and also i received this cute award from Tricia @ Thought Treads Thanks alot Tricia!

Hey girl,
Sorry I missed you post the other day. Did you change your blog? It looks great? I do not know how to tell you about the dishes. I asked my Mom and she said, "bring them home and wash them" I know Ha Ha. Have a great weekend.

I've never sterilized any dishes I've gotten from the thrift. A good washing is all they need really.

Valerie said...

Just wash them is what I do. I haven't even really thought about sterilizing them.

MaryRC said...

I don't have a dish washer either!!! (Its awful, right??) I don't think I would use bleach either...that kind of grosses me out. Hmmm...I would just use hot soapy water. I've never bought dishes at a thrift store because I don't have room for even the ones I got for the wedding, but thats what I would do if I needed to!

Thanks for the award!!!

I've never bought used dishes before because I don't always trust sterilization. I do tend to buy my dishes at the 99 cent store tho.

Everydaywoman said...

Um, haven't bought dishes second-hand, but I'd say running them through a dishwasher would be good enough for me. Without a DW, how 'bout just hot water and antiseptic soap?

Anissa said...

I let it soak a while in hot water and det. and then wash them.

Tara said...

Usually just regular dishwater.. or soak them in vinegar.

Mel said...

Thank you for the awesome award! :) My very first one and it has great meaning! Have an awesome weekend!

Don't be afraid to use bleach. They now advertise sterlizing baby bottles with hot water and a capful of bleach (not a huge amount).

I have never bought my dishes at a thrift store. I will buy them at Target or dollar stores though. Very recently Ralphs had glasses for 99 cents each. I bought 6.
