Cleaning up silver tray tarnished by Katrina
I have a silver tray that I dug up from our Katrina ruins. It might be silver plate, since it's fairly light. Anyhow, after the storm I just washed it and threw it in a closet, couldn't bear to really look at the few things I found. Now that we're getting ready to finally move into a house, I'm trying to decide what to salvage and what to throw away as we begin a new chapter in our lives. I have been trying to clean the tray with Tarn-X, Brasso and Wright's silver cream. It actually looks much, much better, but I had to stop because the fumes were getting to me. There is still a small bit of tarnish and some yellowish tint? Have is stripped too much or was this just a cheap wedding present - ha. Is there anything better I could be doing or am I just wasting my time?
