Bronze eating utensils require special care when they are cleaned, as you want to get rid of all the build-up and residue from cleaning them without using chemically based bronze cleansers. Chemical cleansers can leave behind a residue that can be ingested later when the utensils are used next. Instead, use a homemade cleaning routine that cleans the bronze and removes tarnish and build-up, but uses none of the harmful cleaning solutions.

  1. 1

    Rinse the bronze utensils in soapy water after use to remove excess food residue. Always wash the bronze immediately after use to prevent tarnish and deterioration.

  2. 2

    Pour a dollop of ketchup onto your dish rag and rub it into the bronze utensils. Continue until you clean the bronze, then rinse the ketchup off of the utensils. Dry wih a dish towel.

  3. 3

    Mix 1 tsp salt, 1/2 cup vinegar and 1 cup flour in a bowl. Dip a dish rag in this paste and rub the paste onto the bronze utensils. Let sit for about 15 minutes, and rinse the utensils to remove the paste. Dry the utensils with a dish towel afer cleaning.
