Recommended stain removal
Posted by Steven Pokorny on February 20, 2021, 5:16 pm
Hello: My family has a large collection of brown transfer ware plates and platters (150+). Nearly all are in mint condition. However, we've one platter that has considerable staining front side and less so the back side. We've made three applications of salt and apple cider vinegar paste to the back side with improved success each time. But the front figured side has much more staining. The figures are still clearly visible, but so are the stains. We think that the salt-vinegar paste on the front side would take a very long time to significantly remove the stains. Two questions:
1) Is the hydrogen peroxide soak and sunlight (or heating in low temperature electric oven) work faster?
2) Are there other methods to recommend?
Appreciatively ... Steven, et.al
