Baking Soda As Silver Polish


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

To polish silver: Wash items, then place on aluminum foil in the bottom of a pot. Add a baking-soda solution ( cup soda, a few teaspoons salt, 1 quart boiling water) and cover for a few seconds. The result? A chemical reaction that gets the black off the gravy boat.

    Beware that this tip only works on sterling, though. It can do terrible damage to silverplate.
