How to polish silver


Gather supplies. I chose a large canning pot since I had a teapot I was polishing.

Tear off a piece of tinfoil.

Crumple up tinfoil.

Put tinfoil into pot of water.

Bring water to a rolling boil.

Add baking soda to boiling water. I used approximately 3/4 cup since I had such a large pot.

Carefully place piece in water. I submerged this teapot.

I let it sit and boil for approx 20 minutes. Use tongs to take out of boiling water.

Before & After.

Done! *Note: This was not an heirloom piece, so I was completely comfortable doing this. (I would recommend hand polishing an heirloom.)
