Cleaning Silverware

The best way to clean silver is to line a sauce pan with aluminum foil and fill it with water. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda for each 2 cups of water in the pan. Heat the water until boiling and remove from heat. Then lay the silver items in the pan so that they are touching the aluminum foil. Remove the items from the pan, rinse, and polish them lightly. The foil attracts the tarnish so make sure that the tarnished parts of the silver make contact with the foil.

Cleaning Silverware

With this method you are playing with fire. If you leave the silver in the solution too long, it will pit the silver thereby ruining it. And, remember just how wonderful it is just making your silver look nice by polishing it piece by piece. Do a little at a time then it is not a chore. Do NOT use this method on silver plate as it will take the silver off leaving either copper behind or some androgenous other material. (09/10/2005)
