How to remove corrosion on salt shaker lids?

krissie55April 18, 2013

I have several individual salt shakers with silver plated lids and they have a green/white corrosion on the lids.

How do you remove the corrosion?

I'm afraid the corrosion may be permanent. The same thing happened to me. The only solution is prevention by removing the salt and washing the salt shaker after each use. You can try polishing the lids with a good silver polish. If that doesn't work, take them to a jeweler or other business that can resilver them. Mine was past hope which was sad since it was a wedding gift from a dear aunt and uncle. Good luck!
