Caring For Your Silver
A simple way to clean your silver is to put it into an aluminum pan with sour milk and let it stand for a few hours. Then rinse in hot water and polish. If your silver is going to be stored for any length of time, then put a piece of camphor with it or rub the silver with Vaseline or sweet oil. When possible to do so, stand the flat silver in large glass top fruit jars with a pad at the bottom. Cover the top with cotton and place a piece of camphor in the jar. Then screw the lid on the jar. This makes an airtight container and keeps the silver perfectly without tarnish.
