Instructions to Clean the Silver Tea Set

  1. Start by washing the silver tea set with a soft, damp cloth and mild dish soap.
  2. If there are any more stubborn stains, you can make a mild cleaner by combining a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of baking soda. Dip a soft cloth in the mixture and blot it over the stains. Make sure to rub gently.
  3. Use a soft-bristled brush for hard-to-reach areas or to remove dirt or grease that may be stuck in the crevices.
  4. Use a toothbrush to reach finer details. Remember to move the brush back and forth. Do not scrub.
  5. Once you’re done scrubbing, clean the silver tea set again with a damp cloth to get rid of the cleaner, then dry it with a soft towel.
  6. Polish the silver tea set with a silver cloth or silver paste. Polish in the same direction as the grain and use short, gentle strokes.
  7. Wipe the silver clean with a dry cloth to get rid of any excess polish.
  8. Store the silver tea set in a cool and dry place. Make sure to also clean and polish it before putting it away.
