Removing Tarnish Naturally

Notice tarnish on your silverware? Did you know there is a very easy way to remove it with one pantry item? Throw out all your store bought tarnish remover because you won't need it!
  • removing tarnish naturally, cleaning tips
To start, grab your tarnished items and place them in a single layer in an aluminum pan. *NOTE: The pan needs to be ALUMINUM due to the chemical reaction that takes place. If you do not have an aluminum pan, you can cover any pan with aluminum foil to get the same effect.

Pour a generous amount of baking soda over the silverware. Then pour boiling water CAREFULLY on top. Allow it to cool and then remove the silverware, rinse, and wipe with a clean cloth.

    That's not natural & it's got scratches on it. Polish actually POLISHES!!! Shiny & smooth!!
    USING silverware will prevent tarnish accumulation where your hands are always rubbing it. Hot foods will create tarnish on soup spoons & forks.

      @Karen I was told by a silversmith that it pits silver plate...it doesn't work very well on my tea and coffee set anyway.

    I posted this when this idea was first put on Hometalk, and caught some flak for it, but since other people are speaking up against this idea, I'll say it again: do NOT use this idea on your jewelry or any silver you really love. If you have a pile
