A person polishing silver jewelry with a cloth.My daughteer and I have those treated cloths for cleaning silver. I know there is a way to retreat them after laundering. We would appreciate the recipe.

Throw away those old cleaning cloths! I've learned of a NO HASSLE way of cleaning silver. Boil a pot of water.You want it scalding hot. While waiting for the water line a dishpan (or sink--whatever you want to use) with aluminum foil. Pour in a large amount of baking soda.If I need extra cleaning I use awhole box.Add the hot water, and dip the silver. Cleaning silver was a chore I absolutely despised. Don't be afraid to try this. It will not harm your silver.

Each time you treat sterling or plated silver with this suggestion, you actually REMOVE some silver. Surest way to run silverware. DON'T do it unless the piece is already worthless.

I lined an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil shiny side up and poured 2 cups boiling water and then 2 tbsp baking soda. It cleaned the silver, but left it dull.


Use a polishing cloth afterwards and it will be absolutely beautiful and like brand new.
