Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you, how to clean pewter. I'm going to start with household products, there are commercial products that you can buy for pewter, but I really like using household products when can, so I am going to make a paste with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup vinegar, and 1 1/2 cup flour, and I'm going to just stir it around and get it all mixed up. And with my pewter, I'm just going to- I have these pewter keys that I'm just going to take and put a little bit of the paste on, and I might let it sit just for a few minutes, and then go back, and with hot water, using your sponge rinse the paste off, and then you want to dry your pewter really well. I'm Ann Myrick, and this is how you clean pewter.
