    I use Semichrome polish or Weimans. Never use Tarnex, it will ruin your silver.

    Instructions for Making Homemade Silver Cleaner:

    • Line bottom of non-aluminum dish with a sheet of aluminum foil.
    • Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda into a quart of hot water.
    • Soak for a half hour — time may vary depending on degree of tarnish.
    • Buff with clean, dry cloth.

    I sell a lot of silver on Ebay. Jewelry, silverware, serving sets. Silver polish like Wrights and dips like TarnX tend to remove some of the metal. The foil method doesn't work that great and still leaves a grey film that still needs to be removed. I use white toothpaste (not gel) and a damp toothbrush. For large items I use a damp cloth. Also works on copper, brass, gold, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything.
