Scrub the silver dish using charcoal powder mixing with little water for a few minutes. Then after wash off the dish and again scrub the dish using a piece of lime with dish-wash liquid and wash off.

Line a pan with aluminum foil, boil water in it (or pour boiling water in it if it's too big), add some baking soda (a little for a small pan, more for a bigger pan), then add your item. The tarnish comes right off. I was stunned the first time I heard this and tried it, but it works great!

Toothpaste (not gel toothpaste) and you can find it on the cheap at a dollar store ;-) I have an antique ornate solid silver butter dish my grama gave me as a gift for high school graduation almost 40 years ago and that's what I use. Apply the toothpaste on cotton balls and gently rub in a circular motion with the balls. Then a quick dish soap wash and water rinse and a thorough dry :-)
