The Steel Wool Trick

I hate touching steel wool and I loathe the way it makes my fingers smell.
Yet I need to use steel wool all the time, especially when working with blackened steel wire..

I keep the wad of steel wool into a plastic "snack size" baggie.

When I need to buff up a piece of wire I just push it down into the steel wool inside the bag. Wiggle and scrub the wire around while pinching it from the outside of the bag. It works great when cleaning headpins.

No touching nasty steel wool ever again.
