The combined effect of last Wednesday’s Silver in the Dishwasher update post and the survey I sent out a couple of weeks ago (thanks again to all of you who participated) to lead to wonderful questions and discussions via email and on Facebook.
I am going to address the issues raised…and in particular to the person who wanted to know about lead in silverplate this Wednesday’s post will address that issue.
