Re: [Histonet] removing silver from counters, etc.
Put a concentrated solution of i.e 10% or more sodium thiosulfate on top of
the silver spot, could be a cloth or paper towel soaked in this, and check
the progress. I recovered a damaged blouse this way years ago.
I also suggest using tabletop "diapers" or bench protectors (disposable)
to prevent spills onto surfaces on the future, a simple paper towel works
