The Easiest Way How to Clean Silver Jewelry
Today we will try to return the purity and shine, tarnished or covered with a black coating, silver. To clean silver, we will need only 2 ingredients: baking soda and foil.
I think everyone will be able to find them in the kitchen. And if not, they can be purchased at the nearest store. The procedure takes only a few minutes.
This method is suitable for processing silverware and jewelry. Jewelry should not have natural precious stones (Stones can fade).
1. Baking soda
4. Old toothbrush
5. Hot water
There is such a test subject. Lately it has faded a little and lost its original luster. Now let's try to return it.
I take a small bowl and cover it with foil.
Pour 2 teaspoons of baking soda into a bowl.
I take the kettle and pour boiling water.
I drop the bracelet into the bowl and wait until reaction will be complete.
After 10 minutes, the reaction will be complete. The water will become muddy.
I took out his bracelet and brushed it a little.
I washed it with clean water and dried it.
The bracelet was as good as new. The stones did not darken.
In such a simple way, you can return the Shine and beauty of your jewelry. It is necessary to carry out cleaning at least once a year, and if necessary, more often. To prevent jewelry from darkening and need to be cleaned less often, store them in a dry place, away from medicines, cosmetics and household chemicals.

Nice recipe, thanks for sharing! My mom also always cleans silver with different methods. I remember she cleaned it with toothpaste, but it turned out bad. I have several favorite rings and necklaces that I ordered for myself https://matchinggear.com/mother-daughter-necklace/. I was very worried when the pendant darkened. So, my mom found on the internet another way to clean it . She left silver in a solution of water and ammonia overnight and it worked. But I think it is dangerous for gems and stones, just for silver is good. I don't know the exact proportions, but the effect was amazing.
