329. Cleaning Silverware

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.
