How to Clean Silverware in a Fast Easy Way


It may happen that you are having an elegant dinner party or a special event going on, and right before the guests come you notice that your silverware is not too bright and has some tarnish, but there is a way that you can polish your silverware fast and easily without cleaning piece by piece.

Things You'll Need

  • Plastic basin
  • Aluminum foil sheet
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup washing soda
  • Spoon
  • Towel
  • Place an aluminum foil sheet, with the siny side facing up, in the bottom of a plastic basin.

  • Put the silverware on top of the aluminum foil, making sure each piece has contact with the foil.

  • Distribute 1/4 cup of washing soda and 1 teaspoon of salt in the basin. Add a gallon of boiling water and stir with a spoon to mix. Any tarnish on the silverware will transfer to the foil. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

  • Pour the solution out and rinse under running water. Dry with a towel.
