All over Pinterest there is great ways to clean, organize, and fix things.
But do they all work?
I put one to the test.
This particular article said that tarnish could be removed from silver and silver plate simply by boiling the silver in water filled with strips of foil, vinegar, and baking soda.
So I went to work.
Here is my pot of tarnished silverware:
Close up to show you how tarnished they are:
I followed the "recipe" and added my foil, baking soda, and vinegar.
I put all my silverware in at once.
I found I had to keep adding water as it was boiling down rather fast.
And after about 15 minutes, voila, beautiful silverware emerged!
I am so happy to have found this trick as I can't stand the paste used to get tarnish off.
It's so messy and seems to get all over everything.
So, since this was a success, I thought I'd share it with you!
