Note: This post was created while we were on the road in Luxor, Egypt.
We rejected in error a comment from a reader so we have created a post here to repair the error.
The reader asked why his/her soup spoon bowls tarnished faster than the spoon handles.
We can only guess at the answer. Certain foods cause tarnish much faster than others. These include eggs and vinegar. We add vinegar to some Chinese soups we prepare from time to time so maybe that's what this reader was doing. We suggest prompt hand washing after use to help alleviate the problem.
We will be interested to hear comments from other readers on this subject.
