Cleaning Silverware

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.

Cleaning Silverware

Store the silver (when cleaned) in Atlantic Cloth, which has a tarnish attracting chemical (if I am not mistaken, it absorbs the sulfur in the air).

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

Cleaning Silverware

Do not use the aluminum and sodium bicarbonate method to clean silver. It will remove the silver plate right off your items. If you are cleaning sterling, eventually it can remove the ornate decorations. My restaurant has used Silvermate silver cleaner for years. It is a safe, ecofriendly liquid that cleans and polishes in just a few seconds without polishing your knuckles blue. It's mild enough to use without gloves. (04/27/2009)
