Whether you are looking to restore your tarnished jewelry or silverware, it can often feel like a fool’s task. Once silver has become tarnished, the prospect of resuscitating it can seem too far fetched to even embark upon. We don’t have to tell you how difficult this task can, be but what we can do is offer you some much needed help.

All it takes are two simple household ingredients to have your silver looking just as beautiful as the day you bought it. In addition to the two ingredients, you’ll also need a little bit of aluminum foil. NZ Coins passed this hack along to us and now it is our pleasure to share it with you. No harsh cleaning products or harmful chemicals are required.

To get started, grab a shallow bowl and line it with plenty of aluminum foil.

Next, add a few spoonfuls of salt and baking soda to the bowl.

Once they have been added, you can pour some boiling water over the solution. Add the silverware or jewelry that you are looking to clean and mix around the solution a few times. Give the silver at least five minutes to soak before proceeding.

Then, use a soft cloth to start drying and buffing the piece(s).

That’s literally it, we promise you. It may seem too good to be true but this is a hack that you are going to be using for years and years to come.
