Some things can change completely if you put in just a little bit of effort. The same goes for animals and people. The people in this article tested this by experience: one person took their dog to the groomer and ended up with a new dog, and another person simply cleaned their old bowls and candlesticks and saw what they looked like when they were new.

The Bright Side team was really impressed with these before and after photos. Just look at how different the same things can look after a little change!
