Weekend Dinner Party Woes (Part 4)

Disastrously dirty cutlery: how to escape embarrassment at the dinner table

Inviting your mates around for a couple of drinks and some food sounds simple doesn't it? Wrong! If you're anything like us, you want to impress to the max with the poshest plates and shiniest silverware. However, locating your cutlery might prove a shock as this stuff truly does attract dirt and water marks are a hazard with high-quality.

Case in point

We've got the solution to brighten the cutlery so much you're guests will be able to see their visage in its shiny surface. Once again, we call on our friend, Bicarbonate of Soda to solve this issue.

The Fail Safe:

  1. Line a shallow tray with a sheet of tin foil and fill with warm water 5 cm deep. Add teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and mix
  2. Place the dirty cutlery in the tray and leave for 10 minutes
  3. Remove the cutlery and rinse to remove last traces of dirt
  4. Leave to dry naturally but use a soft cloth to buff up and remove last traces of dirt.

Alternatively, if you don't have miraculous Bicarb to hand, then simply use a little olive oil/vinegar/lemon juice on a cloth and rub the cutlery gently to remove those annoying and unsightly streaks.

Happy Gleeming!
