Sour Milk for Cleaning Silver?!

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Here in the shop, I don't have a fridge to keep the milk for my coffee cool, but look at what I found:

Sour Milk Silver Soak

If you have a carton of milk that has expired, don’t toss it out because sour milk is a great silver cleaner.

Sour Milk Silver Soak

  • For every cup of of milk, stir in one tablespoon lemon juice or one tablespoon vinegar and leave for five minutes so it sours.
  • If the milk is sour already, you can skip adding the lemon juice or vinegar.
  • Soak your silver pieces in the sour milk overnight (completely covered) and then wash as usual.

This great little Tip was found on TIP NUT website.
