In Response To: Removing spray residue from Roseville vase. (Chris Rockafellow)

First of all ,are you sure that this object has not been restored?The normal way to clean it would be to soak it in a plastic dish pan or plastic pail or equal.Fill it with a mixture of "Biz" powdered detergent(per instructions on box) its a non bleach product which is important.Never use bleach,at least unless you really know what you are doing as bleach will work on glaze and errode it.Actually any non bleach detergent would probably work as well. Use warm water ,soak it for an hour or so in the pan.Use soft brush ,tooth brush or what have you to help wipe the dirt film off. It really is a lot easier than it sounds.After cleaning let it soak in clean or distilled water for a few hours. Hand dry and set in a warm area to completely dry.Thats it! P.S. try not to hold it by the handle,its the most delicate spot and if it has been restored its probably the weakest point.Good luck, Peter Dale.
