How to clean silverBy
Want a quick and easy way to clean your silver or silver jewellery? Ive made a little video showing how this can be done with kitchen foil and soda.
The foil lines a glass bowl and I then place the silver to be cleaned inside. I add hot water and then a shake of bicarbonate of soda. Wait a minute or two for best results. Discard the liquid , probably best to rinse the silver under a cold tap next and then polish with a soft cloth. Cheap, easy and quick
This is particularly great for cleaning fiddly little silver jewellery which is difficult with silver polish , I like to clean vintage charms this way
Dont leave the silver in the soda too long if you want to keep a vintage look, test every few seconds or you will get silver that looks new
Only clean silver like this, do not attempt if there are any other materials on the jewellery such as crystals, gemstones , pearls, enamels.
I suppose I should have been wearing protective gloves to do this – please ensure that you do.
