German Flatware

can i wash antique flatware in a dishwasher?

i'm about to get some german antique flatware from wwii. i was wondering if it would be safe in the dishwasher.

I will guess they are pewter? If that's so you can put them in the dishwasher with vinegar and salt only ( 1 cup after the washer fills - white distilled and 1/2 cup salt) on the short wash with no heat dry.. Then hand wash with a mild dish detergent.

If they are silver plate use regular dish detergent and normal cycle and a no heat dry be sure to wipe them perfectly when done.

If they are early stainless hand wash them.

If they have any glue areas or embellishments that are not metal...Hand wash them.

***Flatware is cutlery/utensils not dishes. WWII puts them Circa 1939 to 1945 Which is Vintage not Antique (Antique is items over 100 years old) Flatware sets of the day were gold and/or silver plated - Bakelite - Pewter - Stainless Steel ...The "good set was sterling" refered to as Silverware not flatware some were inlayed with mother of pearl or gems.

Identify the make and manufacturer and the composition to wash and care for them properly. DO NOT use Tarnex on them if they are Silver plate.
