Polishing Silver With Baking Soda

To polish silverware and remove tarnish, use your Arm and Hammer baking soda, a bowl or pan to fit your silverware, and aluminum foil to line the bowl.

  1. Line the bowl with foil.
  2. Place your silver in the bowl.
  3. Boil the water to fill your bowl and cover your silverware.
  4. Pour it into the aluminum lined bowl.
  5. Add the baking soda, about 1 cup per gallon of water. I used one quart of water, so 1/4 cup of baking soda. It's going to fizz, and it's fun to watch.

You can re-heat the baking soda water to give your silver more treatments if it is severely tarnished. This method doesn't remove any of the silver from your items, like commercial tarnish removers do, and the bubble action gets into small crevices that are difficult to polish otherwise.
