This method for cleaning your tarnished silver jewellery is faster, more effective, and less messy than using a polishing cloth or cleaning solution:
Step 1. Line a small tupperware or old yoghurt container with aluminium foil.
Step 2. Add your tarnished silver jewellery plus 1-2 spoonfuls of baking soda.
Step 3. Pour enough boiling water over your pieces to cover your jewellery.
Step 4. Watch in amazement as your silver jewellery is transformed! You can “stir” the jewellery around a bit with a plastic or wooden utensil (i.e. a chopstick) to ensure it's thoroughly cleaned and add more baking soda as necessary.
Step 5. Rinse your jewellery with water, and then dry carefully with a soft cloth or towel.
