I love silver jewelry but after awhile it starts to looks so dingy. I get out the ole silver polishing rag but even that doesn’t take care of it the way I would like.
I used to buy a ready made silver jewelry cleaner but happened to be out and wanted to clean some necklaces so Google here we come.
I found this great homemade solution that did a marvelous job.
You will need
- dish detergent
- baking soda
- aluminum foil
Line a casserole dish with aluminum foil. The foil does not have to cover the entire bottom but needs to be large enough to accommodate your jewelry.
Heat 1 cup of water in the microwave for 2 minutes. Pour into dish.
Add 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. dishwashing liquid & 1 tsp. salt to the dish. Swirl around to mix together.
Place your silver jewelry in the solution and allow to set for 5 – 10 minutes.
Remove the jewelry from the mixture and rinse with cool water. I used a strainer so I didn’t lose anything down the drain. Not that that’s ever happened before. Nope, not me!
Buff with a soft cloth or jewelry cloth and your silver jewelry will look like new again!
