I want to share how I get sparkly silver quick and easy with you today.
(you know I like “easy“)
When I was down in California on vacation I found this sweet little Reed & Barton Mayflower gravy boat and platter base. It was very tarnished, which I sometimes love… but I like to freshly clean new silver that I bring into my home.
So, I grabbed my go-to silver saver.
Love this stuff. I actually got this at a tag sale for 75 cents. Super bargain!
You can see the Tarn-X liquid start in on the tarnish, without even touching it!
I had not even started to rub yet. I gently dripped it on the gravy boat, and let the excess flow into the platter. Then I grabbed a few paper towels and rubbed it across the rest of the surface. I use those, because they doesn’t soak up all the product and I can toss them when I’m done. After everything is all perfect and shiny, I wash with soap and dry.
The Reed & Barton Mayflower piece was $6.00 – It’s silver plate.
But that matters not to me, it could be solid silver and I wouldn’t like it any better.
It’s looking pretty now. The silver coloring is just so soft, and mellow. Love the richness and depth.
So, next time you see some silver that needs some love, remember it’s easy to make it look like “new” again. You know, if you’re into the shiny, sparkly silver look.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
