Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you, how to clean your pewter. I have made a paste with some home products, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup vinegar and a 1/2 cup flour, just from the cabinet, I'm going to mix up, and then I have these pewter keys that have gotten pretty dirty, so I'm going to just take one of the keys, and using a toothbrush- now you can use this on anything pewter, since these are very small a toothbrush really works, because it gets in those little cracks and crevasses. I'm going to let that sit just for a few minutes, and then I'm going to come back, and I might even get my toothbrush cleaned, so I can get back into getting all the paste out of the cracks and crevasses, and then you want to dry. And this is Ann Myrick, this is how you clean pewter.
