Holmegaard white cased vases
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:17:04 PM »
Hi, 2 lots of help please, are these Holmegaard? and also I have some dead leaves and marks on the inside, I need to get out the dead leaves and clean the vases inside without damaging the white interior. Any suggestions please. Sue

Definitely not Holmegaard. Possibly Swedish, maybe Chinese. Someone else might know for sure.

For cleaning - just fill with room-temperature soapy water and leave to soak a while. A quick swish after soaking should dislodge any debris. Failing that, bottle brushes come very in handy!

thanks for the reply tried the soapy water that didn't work and the neck is too small to get a bottle brush down

Magic balls (you can buy them from Lakeland) - just swirl a few around in a bit of warm soapy water.

It might just be me but I'm rather disillusioned with the old Steradent trick - I've found it does nothing that a bit of washing up liquid in warm water and a bottle brush or magic balls can't do better.

Possibly Italian if they are triple cased?
