Heirloom Baby Spoons

Silver baby spoons tend to get lost in a collection of heirloom utensils however these beautiful pieces should certainly be used & in new ways, no less. The coveted pieces usually have the initials of the child engraved on the handle & serve as a lovely keepsake to cherish. The small nature & shape make them the perfect size to use when preparing cocktails in bodega glasses for social gatherings. While they are certainly appropriate to display when ritzy parties are at the forefront, make them a focal point for tailgating festivities, too.

How To Polish Silver

A bit of cleaning will need to be addressed in order to have heirloom silver looking its’ best. To remove the tarnish quickly & effectively, particularly from baby spoons, place settings & cake servers with intricate details, my two step method will tidy them so that only minor polishing will be needed during the remaining season. Once the task is complete, use them to prepare a Bloody Mary or classic Old Fashioned.

Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with the shiny portion facing upwards. Place the silverware in a single layer in the pan being certain all of them make direct contact with the foil. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Sprinkle 4 teaspoons baking soda over the utensils, then pour the water over them. Let stand a few minutes in order for the chemical reaction to remove the tarnish. Once shiny, remove them from the solution with a pair of tongs & rinse them under water. Dry the pieces & use a little commercial cleaner such as Wright’s Silver Polish & a soft cloth to buff them further for a beautiful shine. Wash the silverware well with soapy water before using. The silverware should only need a quick additional polish or two with commercial cleaner during the upcoming months. Tuck away the silver when not in use by placing in zip top bags to keep it looking its’ best longer.
