If by inheritance from the grandmother you have got silverware, it's fine.
You can be proud of it and clean it for every holiday. But even if your silver reserves are counted in several grams of jewelry and a spoon for sugar, their brilliance will please you no less.
But how to polish silverware, in our time very few people know.
You will need
- - Toothpaste
- - olive oil
- - a piece of chalk
- - ammonia
- - denatured alcohol
- - Brush for shaving
- - lemon juice
- - salt
- - soda
- - foil
From toothpaste and olive oil, you can make a polish for products that can not be immersed in water. But too hard to rub is not worth it. Otherwise, you can damage the cover.
Try to prepare your own environmental polish for silver. To make it, mix chopped chalk, ammonia, methane and water.
To apply polishing in the grooves decorated with a thin pattern of products, you can use an old shaving brush, wrapping the bristles with a soft rag.
Do not wash bone handles in hot water. This speeds up the yellowing process. To bleach bone knobs, prepare a paste of lemon juice and salt. Rub in the handles, rinse with lukewarm water and dry.
Put a foil on the bottom of a non-metallic pan,Better in two layers. Pour 1 tbsp. A spoonful of soda and 1 tbsp. Spoon the salt and pour the water. Dip silver products into the solution and leave for two hours. After two hours, the foil will darken, take out the silver, rinse and wipe dry.
