Before & After
Burmese Silver Bowl


This 12" bowl came to me in a very grimy state.

I first rinsed the piece under warm water to remove any particulate. While it was still wet, I sprayed it with Better Life Natural All Purpose Cleaner, waited a couple of minutes, then used a horsehair brush to remove what was left of the grime. I then rinsed the piece and polished it with Herman's Simply Collectors Silver Polish. I only had to use 1/2 of an ounce of polish along with many cotton balls, makeup pads, and Q-tips. Total cleaning and polishing time: 1 hour 40 minutes.
