Clean silver cutlery
TO take the tarnish off engraved sterling silver cutlery, use a soft cloth and bi-carb paste. To clean non-oxidised pieces, line the base of a saucepan with aluminium foil, add cold water, a teaspoon each of bi-carb and salt, and bring to the boil. Submerge cutlery and leave for three to five minutes. Remove, allow to cool then rinse, dry and polish with soft cloth. Some plain silver can be put in the dishwasher.
