DIY: silver polish


It’s no secret that I prefer natural methods of cleaning, cooking, eating and life in general.  When I came across my nasty, heavily tarnished silver I didn’t deviate from this preference.  Without further ado here is what I did.

 what you’ll need

– tarnished silver jewellery or silver cutlery

– kettle of HOT boiled water

– glass or ceramic medium sauce pan

– baking soda

– aluminum foil

what you’ll do

– line the medium sauce pan with a sheet of foil (I placed the foil SHINY side up)

– lay your silver on the foil.  Be sure it has contact with the foil

– sprinkle baking soda over your silver

– pour the boiled water over your silver so that it covered and allow it to sit for 5 minutes

– after 5 minutes carefully remove your silver from the HOT water, rinse it in cool water and dry it completely with a clean cloth

That’s all there is to it!

No scrubbing, no harsh chemicals just a couple of everyday household goods!

Time to shine up!!  xo julie
