How to Clean Silver-Plated Cups

Save

Silver-plated cups are made of metal coated with a thin layer of real silver. These items require extra care while cleaning to prevent chipping the silver. Handle the cups gently and never use any harsh abrasives. Clean silver-plated items with a mild soap and remove tarnish with a baking soda solution.

Things You'll Need

  • Mild dish soap
  • Baking soda
  • Sponge
  • Aluminum foil
  • Fill your sink with warm water and a little dish soap. Wash the cups with a sponge to remove any residue.

  • Rinse and dry the cups. Drain the sink of soapy water.

  • Cover the sink bottom with a sheet of aluminum foil. Refill with warm water and add 1/4 cup baking soda. Make enough solution to submerge the cups.

  • Submerge the silver plated cups under the water, making sure they touch the aluminum foil. The tarnish should disappear after a few seconds.

  • Rinse the cups again and dry thoroughly.
