      It is scratched and has a gouge on the inside of the teapot and I am concerned about the possibility of something leaking into tea. Thanks for asking. I appreciate everyone’s response so far

  • Try get a plastic bowl, put in a few spoon of baking soda (Bi-carb) a few pieces of foil gently scrunched in your hand and then BOILING water. Put in the the teapot in and watch. It is great for silver also.

    Hi Beth

    Cleaning pewter teapot

    To clean antique pewter, put one teaspoon salt in one cup white vinegar. Add flour into salt and vinegar until it makes a paste. Apply the paste and let it sit on the pewter for fifteen minutes to an hour. Rinse with clean warm water and polish dry.

    For polished pewter, use a solution of warm water and dishwashing liquid to gently remove any dirt from the pewter piece, then rinse it carefully and dry it with a soft cloth. You can also use a mixture of one cup of vinegar and half a cup of flour to clean polished pewter.
