Recently I read on a blog that you could use baking soda to clean your silver pieces. I have tried to find the blog where I read this on, but failed.
Anyway, I thought it was a ridiculous idea...and so right up my alley! You know I had to try it.
Ta-Freakin-Dah...Honestly, when I show you the before you are going to be amazed. I'm going to be embarrassed to death, but you will be amazed!
Let's get close ups cuz they don't look bad enough from farther away, right?
Yeah, I am one of THOSE people who usually say "I like my silver tarnished" but, honestly mine were getting way out of line.
I also don't like the idea of eating with silver when it has been cleaned with chemical tarnish cleaner, so I just let it go --- way too long! Today I got out a box of baking soda and a wet rag. I sprinkled baking soda into the spoon and used the wet rag to spread it around. Off came the tarnish without hardly any effort!
AMAZING!!!Yes, I'm easily amazed when it comes to kitchen things...thanks for pointing that out. But just try this and you will see how easily the baking soda takes off the tarnish. After you take the tarnish off, just run the silver under warm water to remove any baking soda and dry it with a clean cloth.
Here's one more shot of all those spoons. I ran out of baking soda so the rest are waiting until I run to the store again.
If I find out who originated this idea, I will give them credit for sure...and all my undying gratitude.
Thanks for dropping by!
