Looking for an easy way to polish silverware? You have come to the right place. This method uses all natural ingredients, and takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
I learned this quick tip from a Martha Stewart magazine I read about 10 years ago, and I cannot believe how easy and effective it is at removing tarnish. I have only tried this trick on silverware, but you can probably try it on any tarnished sterling silver or silver-plated item you have (maybe try a small section first, and proceed with the whole piece if all looks well on the small trial section.)
Here’s What You’ll Need to Naturally Polish Silverware
Directions: How to Polish Silverware Naturally
Place your silverware in a single layer in the aluminum pan.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup to 1 cup baking soda over the silverware. You really need to pile on the baking soda! Don’t be shy. (In the picture below, I ran out of baking soda, and it didn’t work as well as it had in the past. After buying more baking soda and piling it on… worked like a charm).
Pour boiling water into the pan- enough to cover the silverware. Careful not to burn yourself!
Wait for the water to cool, and then wipe the silverware with a dry cloth to remove excess tarnish.
Done! Nice, shiny silverware!
