In 1996 our house was burned down in a wildfire. I sifted through the ashes and recovered as much of my mother’s sterling flatware as I could find. They were in a box until about 5 years ago when I decided to see if I could salvage any of the pieces.
They were charred and black. I tried many products, and finally just scrubbed the soot off. Then I polished and polished with a variety of polishes until they were at least presentable, if not really shining – it was the sentimental value, not really the beauty at that point.
A few weeks ago someone recommended your polishing cloths. After a big family dinner with all the silver and china, I decided to give it a try. I was AMAZED! In just a few minutes, the sterling flatware was positively gleaming!! I cannot get over the difference! I don’t think they looked this good before the fire!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so excited, even though I will be spending the next few weeks polishing every piece of silver I own… :-)
