I've noticed that very many of my teaspoons are badly stained, and in the small creasing at the back, is black with what can only be tea stain?
A friend said that only scrubbing them with steel wool and detergent would clean them. I don't mind that, but it isn't easy to reach inside the moulded creases at the back. I wondered if there was a solution (such as borax or sodium bicarb or ammonia eg) that I could leave them soak in overnight to bring them all up nice and shiny? I *do* have a "silver cleaning" tray that is supposed to clean silver only by soaking the silver on top of it with added sodium bicarb (I think). Would that do it?
By the way, they are a cheap stainless steel. Not really good quality.
