This may be - no, I'm pretty sure it IS a really dumb question...
But I have a set of antique silver salt and pepper shakers that desperately need cleaning. I know how to clean silver, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what to do about the holes that let the salt out. Don't they get gunky and clogged, thus rendering the shakers useless?
Anyone know of a special technique? I'm clueless here. This wouldn't be a big deal, but my MIL is coming to visit, and her mother gave them to us as a wedding present almost five years ago and I don't want her to think we don't appreciate the gift!
