Re: Is it safe to bleach transferware?
Just a follow up on how I cleaned the stained gravy boat. I found 40 vol. hydrogen peroxide at a beauty supply store. I bought 2 bottles. It wasn't really enough, but I improvised. I put the boat in a freezer baggie and added the peroxide -- kind of like marinading a steak. Then, I put it in a hot water bath to increase the temperature of the chemical reaction. Two days later it was greatly improved. I washed it in hot soapy water and soaked it in clear water for a day or two to get the peroxide out of the porous ceramic. It still looks old... but no ivory and brown stains. Thanks to Michael for all his help! It looks great.
