How to peel the melchior spoons
Cutlery made of nickel silver, as well as silver, are available in almost every home. So I, doing the ordering in the parent cabinets, came across a small box with teaspoons of nickel silver with gold-plated coating. But having been lying there without the need of thirty years, they acquired a very deplorable look.In search of information on how to clean nickel silver spoons, I reviewed the mass various sites and found a lot of pretty simple ways to eliminate this terrible raid on spoons. In practice, I decided to try several cleaning options with simple home remedies as an experiment.For a start, I tried to just wash the spoons using the usual detergent for dishes, but this, of course,no effect on the patina.So let's experiment. 1 way. The bottom of the stainless (or enameled) container is covered with foil and the spoons are laid. We pour 60 grams of soda ash and 40 grams of salt.Fill with hot water so that the items are completely covered by it. We put the container on the stove and boil for 15 minutes over low heat (so that the signs of boiling are barely noticeable). Spoons right before your eyes begin to lighten.Rinse with clean water to eliminate traces of soda and salt, and wipe dry with a soft cloth. Not a trace of black spots remains.This cleaning method is not recommended to be used if there is gold-plated coating on melchior objects. But I still took the risk. Gilding has become somewhat lighter, but this does not matter. 2 way. Apply a little toothpaste on a cotton pad (powder can also be used) and rub a nickel silver spoon, of course, making a little effort.And the spoons flashed their original brilliance again. This is the effect!3 way. Pour a liter of water into a saucepan, set on fire, throw the crushed shells from two eggs (raw) and 30 g of salt.As soon as water boils, we put in it spoons of nickel silver, we boil literally two minutes, and ... all efforts were in vain. Spoons are not altered.4 method is intended specifically for nickel silver with gilding. We wet a ball of cotton wool with apple cider vinegar (you can also use egg white, turpentine or wine vinegar) and thoroughly rub a spoon with it. Alas! Again, no positive result. I even tried to hold the spoon in a clean solution of vinegar for a few minutes, but without success.5 way. On a fine grater, rub the peeled potato tuber and dip nickel silver spoons into the mush.Perhaps, this method of cleaning is the safest, because you do not need to rub or boil, and even more so to use chemical means. Only natural natural component. True, the sense of it, too, is not observed. All blackness remained in place.
