You wanted to have a fancy dinner party, but your best flatware is nothing but a fancy box full of tarnished forks and knives. Got sour milk? Probably not. No fear! Here’s what to do…

Take one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice, and add enough milk to equal one cup of liquid. You’ve just made sour milk! Pour the sour milk in a glass pan, and soak the tarnished silver pieces in it for 30 minutes. Then wash the silver with dish detergent, rinse and buff dry with a soft cloth. (And please throw out the rest of the sour milk so no one drinks it!)
