Most people don’t realize that they can make stain using a simple ingredient- Vinegar.
Here’s how, just add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. It’s important to note that the jars need to be exposed to air to allow for the chemical change to take place, so don’t cover them.
A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. (To get a deeper blue add a tbs or 2 of hydrogen peroxide.
A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue.
To make Black Stain: Place a combination of regular tea and a metal object in vinegar.
Just fill a jar 3/4 with Vinegar, add the metal object (depending on the color you want) and let it set in a cool dark place for about a week. Simple, dirt cheap homemade stain!
