How To Clean A Wine Rack From A Dime

Just remember to only turn it as you pull the coins out from underneath.

To clean a wine rack or barrel, it is best to have a sharp knife for this job. And, in addition to having a clean knife, it is also a wise idea to have another piece of metal (about 15 – 20) with a slight taper to it (if the coin is a silver dime, then it will need to be tipped with a gold coin rather than a copper or another heavy metal). A coin on the flat side of the metal will have a rounded edge and a large hole at the bottom, while the large curved edge will make the coin more comfortable in the slot.

Before working on the coin, check the holes where the coin comes out with a pin-pointing pen, and clean the top of the wine rack and barrel if the coin is silver and has a gold or silver back, with a paper clip at the bottom where it comes out. Check for the backside of the coin as well. Then start by carefully pulling the coin out straight out and down, then slowly bring it back up to the same height as it was originally, then pull it completely up, and place it out on a clean cloth or something. Don’t worry about being careful as much as possible so that you don’t damage the coin or wine rack. Next, make sure there is nothing still stuck in the hole. Once it is out, wipe the cloth off the entire surface down to the bottom of the wine rack. Be careful not to get the cloth wet or to rub anything in the wine rack.

If you do get the cloth soaked or to rub any wine residue into the glass inside the rack, use vinegar or white vinegar, followed by a little water when you are done with the vinegar. I’ve also heard that if you’re careful about washing it, it should take out very little residue.

Once it’s cleaned, put another paper clip on the bottom of the wine rack where there is a coin in it (as in before), and then put another paper clip on the bottom again.

That’s it for cleaning your wine racks.

To make your own wine rack for a small table, use a coffee can’s liner (a piece of thin plastic will work, but may give you an annoying little lip). Next, cut the bottom off the can and then use it as a template. Cut a smaller circle of plastic and put it over the template, pressing it firmly into the liner for a tight fit. Use a couple of screws to hold the liner onto the can.

For a larger table, you can use the same can and cut the bottom off. The template will then sit over the can with a screw. This should look a bit like this:

The rack will need a removable sleeve, so take a bit of a round metal spoon and a little metal plate with a small hole (about 3/8 of an inch in diameter is good) and glue them together using a water-based glue such as PVA glue. Next, cut the sleeve out of the plastic and set it on the table. Then glue it to the rack with a water-based glue such as PVA glue. Then screw the sleeve to the rack, and attach a peg to the hole. Once you are done, add the rack on the chair and glue the cup holder for serving, and then use your pin-pointing pen again to check the hole where coins are placed. If you are having trouble getting rid of any residue from the coins, you may want to give the table an update, and check the coins to make sure you can get rid of the residue without destroying them, which won’t harm them at all.
