Polishing Metal in Our Apartments in Wildwood, Florida
Whether it’s a favorite necklace, an antique watch, or a set of silverware for special occasions, most people have items made of precious or semi-precious metals that can tarnish over time. While the vintage look of darkened metals appeals to some, others want to keep their silver, cold, pewter, and bronze as bright and shiny as possible.
Since you may not need to polish your metals more than once a year, keeping a variety of metal polishes on hand probably isn’t necessary, especially since some of them can be toxic and require special gloves and masks. Instead, try a few household ingredients for your polishing needs:
- Gold or platinum pieces can be cleaned in a solution of warm water and a few drops of ammonia.
- Sterling silver can be cleaned by letting it soak for several minutes in a solution of warm water and baking soda.
- Copper and pewter can be cleaned with a paste made from table salt and white vinegar.
