Honey! if they're silver they can be cleaned more easily in a tub of hot water. I think you're supposed to put a sheet of aluminum foil on the bottom and then through in some baking soda, but you should look for the trick online to get it correct. It's supposed to work really well though.


Hi Paula - I've tried that before and unfortunately it didn't work for me. My silver went grey for some reason, so now I start with a good rub with a lint-free cloth, a tiny bit of silvo if it still won't come up and then an electric buffer to get a high shine, especially in awkward spots.

And boy are those antlers awkward!!


I'd have cleaned them for you. I love polishing and the smell of Silvo.


You did the right thing by getting them out, not your fault to assume they were all ready to go.
You'll feel so much better without them!!
