An awesome tip to clean your old, oxidized Bidri pieces! May 10 2016

When one of our clients from Canada, Deepu, mentioned that some her old inherited Bidri artifacts had badly tarnished and she wasn't quite sure how to restore them, we suggested she rub their surface with a white pencil eraser.

And voila! Look at the results for yourself in this picture that Deepu sent us! How utterly exquisite is that Bidri box?! You can see on top how blackened it had become!
And since you know this little trick now, go ahead and bring back to life all your old Bidri pieces! Beautiful things are meant to be enjoyed and not kept stored away in drawers! :)
