Clean ALL of your silver at ONCE! Line your sink (or pan) with aluminum foil, shiny side up. Pour 1/2 c. baking soda 1/2 c. salt into the sink. Fill sink two-thirds full with almost-boiling water. Submerge silver for about 2 minutes. Rinse with hot water, and then immediately dry with a soft cloth - Good as new *** IT WORKED!!!! USED IT ON THE COFFEE/TEA SET!
