It is not that I have many silver items in my house. Not at all I would say. Just 4 and those are on the photo in this article.
The little pig was a gift for the customers of the company I work for (although the company has now different owners),
The other three items have more value to me. They belonged to my mother and I can remember that they were gifts for mothers day. So yes, they are kinda special to me.
Now I have been told that it not good to polish silver too often. So in that way I am taken really good care of my silver things. I mean, when I walked this afternoon through my living room I suddenly noticed that they were not shiny any more, but looked really grey. I realized that this was moment to polish them.
I can remember that my mother always used something called “Silvo” to polish her silver. So I went to the local supermarket and to my pleasant surprise this silver polish is still available.
I also can remember that this silver polish had a very strong scent. So I decided to do the polishing on my balcony and that was a good decision, because the scent was everything but pleasant.
Now, 30 minutes later, the silver statues are all bright and shiny again!
But I am very afraid that somewhere in the future there will be a day that I suddenly wonder when these silver statues all turned grey instead of shining brightly!
