sort of kitchen related: sterling flatware & dark spots
the last time i used my sterling flatware i kept the service out with the dishes, in the sink until after the guests had left for the evening. by the time i got to them, small black spots had developed on some of the pieces. no amount of rubbing would remove them. i later found that a simple paste of baking soda and water would do the trick, BUT what is the best way to "hold over" sterling silver before cleaning, so this doesn't happen again?
