SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS

Dear Chatelaine's Antiques,

This set of salt and pepper shakers belonged to my wife's grandmother. 

border=0  It's been in our family for 82 years. What can I do to make sure they last another 80 years?

Dear C.W.,
Caring for your salt and pepper shakers is a simple process, but it's one that must be done quite meticulously. The first thing you should do is wash them. If you don't, salt will corrode any metal parts and can even invade the glaze of ceramics.
