Ok, So about silver cutlery:
You put your stuff into the basin, on top of a sheet of aluminium foil. Fill with hot water and half a teacup of sodium carbonate.
Leave for half an hour. take out your stuff, and wipe clean: Beautiful clean silver! It works with jewellery too of course, just don’t put stuff with stones in it: it is quite agressive. The aluminium foil has turned black when you take it out!
Here you see some of my cleaned cutlery!
As you can see I have many different designs. That is because I buy a spoon or fork whenever I see one I like in an antique shop, or on a market. They are all old ones anyway. I like old cutlery, especially the spoons: They are BIG! With these spoons you get a whole mouthful of soup, not just a drop.
