The water actually inactivates both significantly and the salt (sodium chloride) is totally inert in the presence of the acid and base. As a matter of fact, when you combine the acetic acid and sodium bicarb, you get water and salt. The foil also does nothing…you can use any dish.
The framed jewelry organized featured on monaluna is both elegant and practical. Notice that it has a thin storage tray at the bottom. It’s useful for storing pendants, rings and other small jewelry pieces and accessories. We also like the fact that the frame and the back panel were painted all white. If you want, you can use some sandpaper to create a distressed, vintage look.
