Polishing Silver

Hello lovely followers,

I have this week been preparing bits and pieces for the shop and have been polishing silver to such a level that my Grandma would be proud. I do feel that this is a bit of a tradition polishing silver but I got a lot out of it and thought I would share some of the photos I took with you.

Ewll yuk before pictures of the fish set

Silvo In a can is the best to use - and its also British!

 So I start polishing...

 Spoons before, look at the cloth getting worse

 Spoons after!
 It is a really messy job this, you use the Silvo cloth initially to get off the top layer of dirt and then I used some kitchen roll to get it really shinny.

 This is a better picture I think, they show up more on the purple.

 I just love this amazing dressing table set!
 This cake slice turned out better than I thought.

Et Vois Lais, I am quite proud of the results actually and think that I did an ok job, was worth the elbow grease to get them looking lovely and sparkly and well worth a purchase I think.

All of items for sale can be found at my shop located at Bretts Farm, Essex. Do come and have a look :)

So my question this weekend is, what are your plans this weekend are you going to be doing any late spring cleaning?

  1. Silvo is FAR too abrasive and will quickly remove the silver from plated items as well as wear down the detail on solid silver.
