1. Put water, 1 TBSP baking soda and aluminium foil (shiny side up) into a saucepan. 2. Bring to the boil. 3. Place your silverware into the saucepan, only a couple of pieces at a time. This should only take about 10 seconds but if they are really tarnished they may need a bit longer. 4. Use your tongs to fish out your silverware and marvel at how shiny it is! 5. Buff dry with a dry cloth.
Aluminum Foil, Boiling Water, Baking Soda and Salt: Keep your sterling shined with this seemingly magic method. Line your sink or a bucket with aluminum foil, and drop in tarnished silver. Pour in boiling water, a cup of baking soda and a dash of salt. Let sit for a few minutes. The tarnish will transfer from the silver to the foil
Cleaning Silver I lined the sink with aluminum foil, the bottom and up on all sides. Then I poured a half-cup of ordinary table salt and a half-cup of baking soda into the sink; filled it with really hot water, and dropped in the silverware. Leave in water for half hour
This really works, amazing! My mother tried it with success and then told me, so I tried it too! :-) Great way to clean Oven Top Filters-- Boil a big pot of water, add a half cup of baking soda (but only one tablespoon at a time - it fizzes). Drop the filter in and watch the grease slide off. Rinse, repeat if desired (I scrubbed gently in some spots).
