She is always commenting on the state of my silverware in the buffet. It's not that I don't like a freshly polished tea pot, it's just I can never find any Twinkle. That is the only way to go, easy on the hands and it does a great job. But I can't find any, anywhere! If anyone has a stash of Twinkle and is willing to share....I'd be interested.
In the meantime, I found a recipe online for silver cleaning...will let you know how it fares over the next few weeks. The ingredients are things you have in a pantry, baking soda, salt and aluminium foil. It did stink a bit and I'm not sure about the harshness on the silverware, but it looks pretty. Oh, did I mention it only took ~ 10 minutes for all the silver in my buffet!
