Here are some home made remedies to clean silverware.
Use baking soda to do a quick, easy polish on silverware. Make a paste of baking soda and water, and use it to polish away tarnish. Rinse the silverware and dry with a clean cloth. Add a bit of salt or lemon juice to the paste to increase the cleaning power and make the piece smell nice.
Use a paste (not gel) toothpaste and a soft toothbrush or cloth to restore shine to silver. Rinse thoroughly, especially in crevices or etched decorations

Here are questions related to Cleaning Silverware.
My good silverware that we use daily looks dingy and tarnished. What is the best way to clean silverware?
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
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.
How do I clean my old silverware? It was not taken care of and was stored in the garage and basement until I received it. I don't know how old it is, but it has been passed down on my husband's side.

Fabric stores sell it by the yard and customized zippered pieces are sold at The Container Store. (12/18/2006)

I had a mouse in my silverware drawer. The mouse is gone, but not the droppings. I need a way to clean my silverware without bleach, but I want to disinfect everything. Would vinegar and baking soda tarnish my silverware? Thank you for your help.
