Polishing silver? Ugh on the hours you need wiping each little tine of each fork with polish and cloth and having to wear rubber gloves and all. My cousin Leslie gave me a terrific tip to make it incredibly easy easy easy. Here it is:
Line a glass or ceramic (nonmetal) pan with aluminum foil. Add about a cup of Arm&Hammer Washing Soda. Place the silverware on the foil. Cover the silverware with boiling water.
Watch the fizz! When it stops fizzing you’re done!. Rinse the silverware in soapy water, rinse, dry an that’s it!
How easy is that?!
