For my birthday this year, lovely friend A gave me this:
It's basically an entire book full of Try It Tuesdays!
So after a quick flip, I picked this neat idea: Clean tarnished silver with banana peel. Lucky for me, Husband had just made a special trip to the grocery for bananas (we were both having a major smoothie craving).
The tarnished items are the goblets we drank from at our wedding. They were passed down from close friends of my family, and I would like to put them on display.
After much rubbing on my part, lovely friend A gave it a try, and we had no luck.
The tip says, for tougher tarnishes, to puree the peels in a blender and then use the resulting paste to buff the silver.
My question to the Readers' Digest people is, have you ever actually tried to blend a banana peel? With no liquid involved? Easier said than done, my friends. I even sacrificed one of my favourite bamboo spoons in an attempt to force the peel into the blade.
The book has lots of amazing tips and tricks that I can't wait to try. This Try It Tuesday, however = total fail.
