Make your tarnished silver and dull jewelry shine like new after a cleaning with common household items like aluminium foil, baking soda or even ketchup.
Cleaning silver with Ketchup:
If your silver is tarnished, ketchup can help. Squirt a small amount on a paper towel, and rub gently over the tarnished areas. If your silver isn’t getting shinier, let the ketchup sit for 15 minutes, then rub with a soft cloth and rinse clean. For items that have textured details, as with some candlesticks or fancy silverware, use a toothbrush to clean between the crevices.
Cleaning Silver with Corn starch
A paste of corn starch and water will make silver look new again. Apply with a damp cloth, let dry, then rub off with something mildly abrasive, like cheesecloth or a rough towel. Tip: You can substitute cream of tartar if you’re out of corn starch.
Cleaning silver with Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer not only fights germs, but it’s a great silver polish. Squirt a few drops on a soft cloth and rub away the tarnish.
