Lucky Luggage!

This is another item I found yesterday but it was in a great need of a makeover!  

Just look at this beauty!  Samsonite Streamlite in the Hawaiian Blue color!
It actually has silver sparkles throughout the color!
Now, let's take a look at it closely!
It's filthy dirty but I could see the potential in it!
Armed with my trusty Mr. Clean Original Magic Eraser and Nev-R Dull, I got started on it.  

Even the top was so dirty, it didn't have a chance at a good home!
Take a look at it now!

It's cleaned inside and out and looks awesome now!  I don't clean it to the point it looks brand new, it's not and I don't want it to look that way.  I stay away from the threads used for stitching as I don't want them to get wet, so there is some dirt still on the piping.  

Best part?  It only cost $3.15 including tax.  I don't think anyone wanted to touch the filth!  I'm sure happy I did.  LOL!

I can't believe how well that cleaned up! You're amazing at seeing the potential in "stuff".
