So I'm always looking for that shape I love -- a deep round bowl...and if the spoons are silver plated, with an interesting design on the handle -- or, the initial "F"(this has happened) -- well -- ALL THE BETTER...
|At this point, I have a huge collection of spoons|
|But, Holy Cow, the tarnish can be terrible...|
|This is pretty unappetizing.|
|The essential ingredients are: aluminum foil, Baking Soda and Salt...|
|Line a pan (or your sink) with aluminum foil, pour in 1/2 salt, 1/2 c. Baking Soda, and fill with HOT water...|
|I layered in my tarnished spoons, then covered them with another sheet of aluminum foil.|
|I let the spoons sit in the pan for about 20 minutes.|
|IT WORKS!! The spoon in this picture is the same as the blackened version in the earlier picture.|
|I also like to find unusual "spooners" -- this one used to be a vase...|
I've gotta go make another pot of soup....
