Discover the Fast and Easy Way to Clean Your Silver and Remove Tarnish
By Gerald Peck 12/1/2016 2:12 PM

If you have real sterling silver pieces in your jewerly box or for a formal table setting and they’ve become tarnished, don’t give up on them so easily. There’s a quick and simple way to naturally clean your silver so it is restored to its former glory once again. Get your silver ready and you’ll be amazed at how shiny and new it will look when you’re finished. Here’s how!

 

1. Fill a pot with water

Make sure the pot is on the large side. Don’t use a small pot or you’ll experience a mess of epic proportions when the mixture boils over. Fill your large pot halfway full of water. 

 

2. Add a ball of aluminium foil

Grab your roll of standard aluminium foil that you’d use to line your baking trays. Just scrunch up a good wad of it into a ball. Toss this aluminium foil ball into your large pot of water.

 

3. Add baking soda

Once the water begins to get up to a good boil, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda. When the baking soda goes in, you’ll notice the water boiling more rapidly and bubbling up. That’s why a large pot is a must or else it will boil over. 

 

4. Dip the silver in

Now here’s the tricky part. You’ll need to be very cautious as you dip your silver into the boiling pot or you could burn yourself. Take extra care as you dip and remove the silver pieces from your pot. A pair of tongs is an essential tool in this process so long as you remember that those tongs can get very hot too. Handle with care. With each silver piece, you’ll want it to sit inside the boiling pot for 30 seconds to a minute. Then remove and rinse your silver items in cool water.

 

5. Marvel at the results

Gone are the days where you need to sit and polish your silver to a shine. This amazing method will save you so much time, not to mention elbow grease. Now you don’t have to waste a whole Sunday afternoon polishing your silver. Instead, you could go out and shop for more now that you know how to make it shine like new!
