Re: [Histonet] removing silver from counters, etc.

From:Gayle Callis

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
