Old tooth brushes and nail brushes, and old
knitted underwear should always be reserved for cleaning silver. Nothing
is better than a tooth brush for brushing the dried whiting out of the
heavily chased silver or repousse work. The chamois skin is best for the
final polishing. If table silver be steeped in hot soap suds immediately
after being used, and dried with a soft clean cloth, a regular cleaning
will not be needed so often.
