Before and After



And all I did was soak these in a large plastic bowl with aluminum foil crumpled in the bottom, hot water, and two shakes of baking soda. An hour later I had a new service set for the grand total of two dollars.
I wonder if the original owners knew they would clean up so nicely, would they have sent them away to the thrift store?
Oh well, one man's trash is this woman's treasure!

Thanks for the tip. I would have never thought of doing that with silver. Silver pieces in the antique stores are looking more attractive now!
