Re: Odor

Nancy,

Is the flatware sterling? If so you can continue washing it with mild vinegar and water solution. Vinegar is excelent for removing odors.

If it is plated perhaps the base metal is comming through the plating and that might be causing the odor.

Re: Re: Odor

Dear Fred,
Thanks so much for your response. The flatware is sterling. I tried the vinegar and water wash (actually scrub!!), but it had very little effect. Out of desperation, I used a baking soda wash--I know, baking soda is dreadful for sterling, but it was that or dispose of the set. The baking soda soak did the trick.

Thanks for your help.
Nancy
