Rescuing Pottery with Toilet Bowl Cleaner

With its hydrochloric acid warning label, I have a lot of respect for the toxicity of toilet bowl cleaner. To rescue this old flower pot, I set it outside on a piece of cardboard, sprayed it down and forgot about it for an hour. Then, with rubber gloves and a green scrubby pad, the rust and scale came off pretty easily. Though the pot is not perfect, it is certainly respectable enough to fill with dirt.
