A Little More on Mexican Pewter
Similar in appearance and durability to silver, but a fraction of the cost, Mexican Pewter is a fabulous way to decorate your home and is both an elegant and beautiful addition to your tableware. Made from lead free aluminium, it requires little maintenance and is far more resilient than traditional pewter made from tin.
Mexican Pewter retains both heat and cold well making it useful for keeping food at a specific temperature. But, very acidic foods, such as lemon and vinegar should not be kept on these pieces for a long time, because doing so can lead to discolouration.
Cleaning Mexican Pewter
Unlike silver it does not require regular polishing. Warm water and a mild dish washer liquid are absolutely fine for cleaning these pieces. But, you can use an aluminium cleaning product to enhance the pewter’s appearance. Abrasive sponges and traditional household cleaning products should be avoided, as should the dishwasher. These pieces need to be hand washed and towel dried.
