    I have been given a set of antlers - very old, very dirty. I have spent a happy evening cleaning them with a mild detergent and an old toothbrush but now think they could do with something to make them shine. Any ideas? Would something like vegetable oil do the trick?

    What about the sort of oil you use to oil wooden kitchen worktops. I don't know the proper term for it, but I believe that it protects stuff as well.

    Aye - in spite of the accent...or lack of it

    @Flere-Imsaho - don't have Pledge here but have just tried Plitz and that has worked a treat :)

    You should try the flea markets and maybe you could pick up a few swords or suits of armour or the like if you are searching for posh ornaments.

    She had antlers @Flere-Imsaho ? Your granny?

    She sounds like a real old deer.
