Are you tired of spending much time and effort, trying every silver polish on the market? Do you wish you could get the job done in a fast and easy manner? Search no more! I’d like to thank Paula Berger for sharing this invaluable homemade recipe, which works like magic in just a few moments. Read on to discover the cheapest, quickest, and a most highly effective way to remove the tarnish from some of your prized silver heirlooms.
To begin with you will need a huge pot or large baking pan, some baking soda, aluminum foil, and a pair of tongs. If using a pot, cover the entire bottom with aluminum foil. Next, place about 3 tablespoons of baking soda on top of the foil and fill with hot water, which you will then boil. When the water is completely boiled and bubbling, carefully drop your tarnished silver inside (one piece at a time) and keep submerged for at least 10 seconds. If you use a pan, first place your silver pieces on top of the aluminum foil and sprinkle them with baking soda. You will then pour boiling water from a pot over the silver pieces that are sitting on top of the foil and baking soda. You will automatically see a chemical reaction take place between the aluminum foil and the baking soda when immersed in boiling water.
Right before your eyes a magic transformation from dull to sparkly silver will occur. If the pieces are heavily tarnished, you may need to keep them in contact with the boiling water for longer than 10 seconds. The water will start to smell since it’s absorbing the tarnish. When the stains disappear, use your tongs to remove the silver, which is too hot to touch. Place the shiny silver on a paper towel. You can then rinse with cold water and some mild dishwashing soap, and dry well with a clean towel.
Once you try this trick, you will probably never resort to using polishing creams or liquids again. This is the quickest, easiest, and most natural makeover you can give your beautiful and prized silver. Plus, you will avoid ingesting the chemicals from silver polish, which would normally get transferred to your bechers (goblets) and other utensils.
You can now sit back and enjoy the beauty and splendor of the sparkling pieces that will adorn your Seder table. Wishing all our reader a chag kasher v’samei’ach.
