Removing Tarnish Naturally

283,693 Views
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.

    Wow, this would probably work on silver jewelry too. Thank you. I will try it.

    I have 2 boxes of tarnished silver that I have laboriously started cleaning. I am going to hunt for them in the moving boxes and give this a try.

      @Gail Ferrier I asked the manager of a local store for it, and now it's in stock all the time. I think once they see it sells they keep ordering it. I also have some aluminum plates that are sold to be used for this purpose.

    Caution! This will take black antiquing off of jewelry. If it is plain silver, with no antiquing, this is great. If antiqued, not so great. I learned this the hard way.
