Cleaning Silver

I have a lot of silver pieces from my family. I've read here before about cleaning silverware, but don't remember anything about cleaning the larger pieces. Could someone help me with this one? The thought of cleaning them, by hand, piece by piece, is overwhelming. Also, how best to store them afterwards? Right now I have them wrapped in cloth and then in heavy plastic, which seems to do OK. Thanks.

Fill your sink up with half distilled vinegar and half water. Make sure it's enough to have your silver pieces completely covered let them sit in there for about an hour or less depending on how bad they are.then take them out Rinse them off and whip them down and they should look brand new

It is advised to use polish for silver. Other things can corrode and pit it. I returned and gave away any silver and silver plated items I received when I married for the reason that I hate polishing it.
