Beautiful quart Drey mason jar with zinc lid. Contained lots of small, medium and large wood spools of thread.
Jar has a smoky gray color. I have cleaned it 3 times and used soft scrub on the inside, however I cannot remove what looks like old canning stains. Any hints would be appreciated.
I am very pleased with my find $5.00 find.

    The wooden thread spools are fun to use in displays - I'm sure you know the thread is probably brittle and not good for sewing anymore. As for the jar, maybe fill it with bleach for a week or so and scrub it again. I wouldn't try to bleach the rubber seal or zinc lid - I am sure you already know this. Love buying these jars too.

    Thank you valentineo97. I filled the jar with bleach for an overnight. I suppose I was too impatient. I will try the week long soak.
