All of us have silver things at home and most of us do not use them everyday. Indian households have silver stuff that are very specific to certain festivals. After the occasion, you will never get a chance to use until next year. Even after wrapping them carefully they tend to tarnish and darken over time.
And it is usually not easy to remove the tarnish and get the original shine.
So, in my TIP Thursday series I have an easy and very inexpensive way to bring back the sparkle.
Lets see what you need :
A big bowl ( spacious enough to immerse the silver thing)
Aluminium foil sheet
Step 1: Fill the container with warm water and add a full spoon of baking soda. Mix until it dissolves and immerse a sheet of aluminum foil.
Step 2: Now immerse the tarnished silver object. Since foil is light weight it floats but don’t worry let it sit in the baking powder water mix.
Step 3: You will see the color of water changing to grey. It means it is working and silver object is ready to shine. It took close to 25 mins for a heavy tarnished object.
Take it out and gently buff it with a cloth and wash throughly under running water.
That’s it you have it ready sparkling and looks almost new.
Isn’t that cheap and super effective way to remove the tarnish.
