A few years ago someone showed me a way to smooth out a chip in a piece of glass. I've used this trick so often that I thought I would share it.
I've done this to the edge of bowls, cups, and 1/2 gallon milk jars. I don't do it on canning jars because the lid won't seal after the rim has chipped. But it makes all the other glass things safe to use. No sharp edges, no cut lips or fingers.
|You can't really see the chip in the photo, but the pencil is pointing at it if you want to get an idea of where it is.|
|I use an emery board or fine sand paper to sand the edges of the chip! An emery board works a little better than the sand paper because it is stiffer and it doesn't tend to rip like the sand paper does.|
