To clean silver, pour hot water into a mug and add 3 Tbsp. salt (to make an electrolite) and some aluminum foil. Leave items in this to soak a few minutes. Take them out and rinse with clean water, then polish with a clean soft cloth. Hey presto, clean silver!

Thank you. But, how does cleaning stainless steel flatware? This silver recipe is recommended all over this site and the internet-everywhere else. How do I clean tarnished or strained stainless steel or inexpensive silver plate?
