I haven't been in our resale shop here for some time maybe 2 months anyway soon as I stepped in I spotted this duck casserole. My Mom had the same duck my youngest sister has it in her kitchen for the time being she is remodeling and discarding all her old kitchen items. I told her I would be up to get a few things I don't want her selling it for a dollar in her yard sale. LOl Like I need more stuff.
Anyway the duck is living here for a while and possibly my Mom's Duck
Sunday after I finished painting the bakers rack and moving it inside I had intentions of cleaning a few silver pieces.
also the baker's rack is in my bedroom and I think I will put all my white ironstone dishes on it also the brown & white transferware
Today while reading a blog and I really forgot which one , one I hadn't read before anyway she was cleaning her silver trays with baking soda and aluminum foil. I thought I am trying that this afternoon after work.
So stopped at the local grocery got my baking soda and here I go.
this is before pictures , oh wait the duck first
It has a name on it and I didn't even know that till I was cleaning it love the bay cherub face on the handle
Mary Leighton Taylor June 19 ,22 I love monogrammed items
they all look so much better I don't care if the new thing is tarnished silver I like mine cleaned
These are the sterling silver bowls very light weight . I have several sterling silver baby cups & spoons also to clean
It all looks so much better this took a little over one hour and I have about 8 more trays to clean, well another day after work I will get to it I need to mow my yard this evening
this is what the cleaning process looked like.
you use very hot water and about 1 cup of this baking soda and put aluminum foil in the container you use and just soak your item about 5 minutes then take it out and start wiping with paper towels. The lady I read about this used old towels . I had one of those aluminum foil pans and it worked great
Here is the new shop I have mentioned before, it is repurposed great things .
