To begin, you’ll want to line a large container with foil. You need the container to be large enough to hold both your silver items and the water. Line the entire inside of the container plus the sides with the foil.You will also need to heat the water. Again, you’ll need enough to fill the container with enough to cover the silver items. I always make sure to heat extra as well.Once the water is boiling, place the silver that you’re cleaning into the container making sure it is touching both the foil and other pieces of silver.
Add 1 tablespoon baking soda for every 1/2 gallon water. Allow the silver to soak for at least 1 hour.
Once the silver has soaked, remove it from the water and dry it fully and immediately making sure not to leave any water spots.
The silver items will be extremely hot when they are fully clean. It is perfectly okay to leave them in the water until they cool provided they are fully covered with water. They will not begin to re-tarnish until they are exposed to air again.
