Also, I have found that pieces with a satin or frosted finish
that have been laying around for a while and are tarnished are
very hard to clean with the standard methods of removing tarnish
i.e. polishing cloths or mild silver cleaners such as Haggerty's.
Any suggestions for a better way to clean pieces with a frosted
finish would be appreciated.
Have you tried the SpeedBrite ionic cleaner? Or how about the tried
& true glass dish of warm water, baking soda & piece of aluminum
foil. The silver item should be completly submerged & in contact
with the aluminum foil.
