Gerber Babies

Not everyone has a Gerber Baby face, but anyone can buy one for $14.99.

While sorting through my mother’s kitchen gadget drawer, I came across a tarnished baby spoon. Yup, it is silver plated. Apparently, my mom got one to commemorate my brother’s birth. The spoon says, “5 29 70 Andrew” in very thin lettering on the handle.  After doing a bit of quick research about the Gerber baby, I found out that you can still purchase a personalized spoon today.

But, who wants to deal with a silver spoon? If you do, but you don’t want to purchase the special polishing cloth or liquid, there is another option.  To remove some of the tarnish from silver  line a glass dish with aluminum foil. Sprinkle in some baking soda and a bit of salt. Next, set your piece of silver in the dish. Poor boiling water over all. After ten minutes, most of the tarnish should have come off.  Remove the silver piece and dry it with a soft cloth.
