A choice piece of cut glassware reflects a rainbow of light only if it's free of every speck of dust. A tarnished platter Is no setting for a noble bird roasted to brown perfection. Flat silver used every day may or may not need the gentle touch of polish to banish the light film of tarnish, but at least look it over ahead of time. Here are some suggestions and tips I've found helpful to extract the greatest beauty from a limited supply of elegant accessories. Cut glassware decanters or vases need attention inside as well as outside, when water deposits have clouded the bases. One of Ihe easiest ways I've found to dissolve this sediment is to let softened soapy water, mixed with household bleach, stand In the container for a few minutes.

I! a silver piece is really a tarnished mess (like a server I inherited that hadn't been touched in years), take it to a jeweler to see how expensive it would be to have it professionally cleaned. In my case, the results more than justified the moderate charge. Gold or silver-banded china, especially if it's been handed down from grandmother, can take its place proudly in the modern dinner setting. Cautious handling is indicated, however. Mild soap and lukewarm water is the safest way to cleanse the fragile pieces. Hairdressers ally ornamental cut work or trimmings. A paste made baking soda with by moistening water and applied "with soft sponge or brush (a oothhrush will reach into deep jrooves) Is a good homemade nonabrasive polisher for glass or crystal. You rub the paste in, rinse it off thoroughly and dry carefully vith a lintless towel. Don't forget he old-time tip of using crumpled issue paper to bring up a sparkle on smooth glass surfaces. Crystal or cut glassware pieces should be washed individually because one piece might scratch another in the dishpan. Don't subject your prized possessions to extreme changes of water temperature.
