10 weird but effective tricks to clean silver objects

We all have silverware, be it jewelry, cutlery or coins. Here’s how you can regain its specific brightness using only ingredients you have in your house.

Aluminum foil
Boil 1 liter of water with a tablespoon of baking soda and a piece of aluminum foil. Put the silverware in the pot for 10 seconds or more and then remove it using pliers. If the blackness doesn’t disappear completely, mix ¼ cup of baking soda with two tablespoons of water. Apply the paste with a damp sponge, then rinse and wipe with a dry cloth.

Laundry detergent
You can use powder laundry detergent to regain the silver brightness. Take a medium bowl, cover its interior with aluminum foil and fill it with warm water. Add one tablespoon of power detergent then soak the silver objects for 1 minute. Rinse them with water and dry them.

Put tomato sauce on a sponge and rub the blackened silver objects. If the blackness doesn’t come out, let it act 15 minutes, then rub with a piece of soft cloth and rinse. If objects have certain patterns, use a toothbrush to get into every corner.

The mixture made of starch and water will shine your silverware. Apply it with a damp cloth, dry it and rub using an abrasive cloth.

Hand disinfectant
This substance has another role. You can use it to clean silver. Put a few drops on a soft cloth and rub the silver objects.

Lemon soda
If you keep your silver objects 1 hour and a half in a bowl of Sprite or 7up and then you rinse and dry them, they will shine.

Glass cleaning solution
Spray some glass cleaner on a cloth or toothbrush and gently rub the silverware. This will regain its original brilliance.

Pieces of chalk
If you put a few pieces of chalk in the drawer where you deposit the silverware, it will absorb moisture and it will protect it against smutch.

If you have a silver keychain, sink it 10 minutes in a solution made of ½ cup warm water and ammonia. Rub it gently with a damp, clean it and dry it.

White vinegar
White vinegar is good for silver jewelry, too. Soak the jewelry 2-3 hours in a cup of vinegar where you’ve added 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Rinse with cold water and dry with a cloth.
