Sodium carbonate for silver cleaning plate
I have a Quicksilver plate purchased in England. Directions say it is to be used with Household Soda Crystals (Sodium Carbonate). What is that in American English? I have baking soda, but I always thought that was Sodium Bicarbonate. Can anyone help?Lee Berkley
