Try to find some proprietary product, or you can use precipitated chalk (mixed with water to thick paste). If you can find it you can use herb called horsetail (Ecquisetum arvense). It is very good for polishing pewter.Goran Budija

Did anyone post an answer about restoring pewter that was placed in a dishwasher? Was the herb Horsetail the remedy? If so, do you make a paste using the herb or just rub it on the pewter?Gary Lauden
