We grow a big garden and put up more corn, canned and in the freezer, than anything else. The part I hate the most is get'n the silk off the corn. I've tried everything I could think of, brushes, high pressure air and water, spinning with a drill; nothing work any better than just using a good brush by hand until last year I tried one more thing. Take your shop vac, with a brush attachment on it and brush the corn with it, works great and instead of silk get'n everywhere it goes in the shop vac. Ain't the perfect answer, but it's by far the best and fastest way I've found. Planted my second planting of corn today, first planting is about 10 inches high, and thought I'd pass this along.
