Most of us have a silver heirloom somewhere in the kitchen. I inherited silver teaspoons from my maternal grandmother. Although I am not terribly faithul in keeping it shiny ALL the time, I do have a trick up my sleeve for those days I want to display them on the pretty tea tray.

How do I clean my teaspoons when the fancy guests arrive? I use SHINE, microfibre and elbow grease.

1. Shake SHINE well.

2. Spray items with SHINE.

3. Wipe item vigourously to dry.

4. Buff to a shine using a clean, dry microfibre cloth.

SHINE is a natural cleaner protectant, which means it cleans and leaves a protective layer of natural oils and waxes on the surface. An added bonus is that you are not left with an empty spray can that must be thrown away.
