    A great way to clean menorahs is to boil a big pot of water and stick the menorah in it. This will melt the wax off of the menorah and make it shine. Just make sure to dump the waxy water somewhere where it will not make a mess. And clean the pot soon after you dump it, as it will be easier because the wax will still be hot.

    Hi Tamara: You can put your Menorah in the freezer for about an hour and then chip the old wax out with a tooth pick or a chop stick. Once you get all of the wax out, polish it with a soft cloth. Or, you can soak the menorah in a hot water bath in the sink. The gentle heat helps break up the wax. Then you can wipe it with a paper towel.

    Good luck and Happy Hanukah

    I sell a lot of silver on Ebay. Jewelry, silverware, serving sets. Silver polish like Wrights and dips like TarnX tend to remove some of the metal. The foil method doesn't work that great and still leaves a grey film that still needs to be removed. I use white toothpaste (not gel) and a damp toothbrush. For large items I use a damp cloth. Also works on copper, brass, gold, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything.

    Buy some Tarnax. It will work wonders.
