Easter is just a few weeks away, and for those of you hosting, now is the time to start going through your lists of things to do before having guests.
I know for me, this is when I pull out my silver serving pieces and get polishin'.
But there's no need to run to the store and spend money on some chemical-filled, stinky silver polish...
A trip to your medicine cabinet will work just fine!
Here are my silver salt & pepper shakers pre-polish:
All you need is a soft rag (I just use a rag cut up from an old t-shirt - the soft cotton jersey is perfect)
and a tube of toothpaste.
Did you catch that?
Regular, white (not a gel) toothpaste!
It only takes a small amount of toothpaste, and a small
amount of elbow grease - wipe on, rub, wipe off.
Seriously, that's it!
This is my favorite method for keeping the silver looking its best.
And I will totally take a minty-fresh smell while I work, vs. stinky silver polish! :)
A perfect, non-toxic polish for your silver that doesn't cost a dime!
