Thanks for all of your ideas smile

I have them soaking in soda crystals - hopefully that will do the trick!

You can buy a stainless steel cleaner called Bar Keepers Friend. I have bought some at Sainsburys. It's very good on metals and takes tea stains off my sink.

Scrub with a sponge scourer. I have the shiniest tea things in aunt used to soak them in bleach, but a sponge scourer works just fine.
