Inherited from my grandmother. Have used for flower arrangements for over 50 years. Think I can have this done professionally - but wonder if there is a way I can polish remove the slight scratches and cloudiness.

    To remove cloudiness try plain white vinegar - but don't let it sit too long. Just swish and dump.

    Could use Jewellers Rouge, but am not hopeful.........

    The cloudiness is from chemicals in the water. Use baking soda with a magic sponge. Damp the sponge and gently scrub. Since this is crystal, if the scratches and dullness don't come out after a couple of tries with the soda and sponge, do give it to a pro.

    I use a bottle brush like you would use for a baby bottle to clean my vases.

    Have you tried soaking it in vinegar and hot water?
