How to Make Easy, Homemade Silver Cleaner


Tired of the messy store bought silver cleaners that cost a fortune? Why not make your own? It's easy, economical and safe for the environment.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 T Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Boiling Water
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Glass Dish
  • Place a piece of aluminum foil (shiny side up) in a glass dish, such as a 9x13 glass baking dish.

  • Place your silver jewelry pieces on top of the aluminum foil and cover the jewelry with boiling water. Be careful that you don't splash the hot water on yourself.

  • Add 2 Tablespoons of Baking Soda and 1 teaspoon of Salt to the hot water. Soak silver jewelry pieces for 30 minutes. You will, almost immediately, see how the chemical reaction of the foil, baking soda and salt magically make the tarnish disappear.

  • Using salad tongs, remove the silver jewelry from the hot water. You can also just drain the jewelry into a colander. Rinse the jewelry with sudsy water, dry and buff with a soft cloth. Voila!! Your silver looks beautiful!
