Cleaning sterling silver jewelry: Line a plastic or glass container with aluminum foil. Place silver jewelry on the foil making sure each piece touches the foil. Sprinkle baking 1T soda and 1T salt over and cover with 1c boiling water. Use a spoon to swirl the jewelry around until it is untarnished. (I did this and was amazed how fast it worked and how clean my sterling was!)
Homemade Jewelry Cleaner 3 Cups water, heated in microwave for 3 minutes on high. 2 Tbsp baking soda 2 Tbsp salt 2 Tbsp dish soap Aluminum foil Casserole dish Line dish with foil and lay jewelry inside Mix all ingredients together into hot water and pour mixture over jewelry Let it sit 10 minutes Rinse jewelry and dry gently, yet thoroughly, with a soft towel, that's it, easy peasy! This worked beautifully on my gold, silver, diamond, gem, and pearl jewelry.
Nothing worked. I couldn’t get my (very) tarnished silver jewelry clean and shiny. Short of paying a professional to steam clean my jewelry, I’d tried everything and been disappointed. Then I saw a homemade jewelry cleaner on Pinterest and thought why not. I’d given up hope on restoring my jewelry… View Post
Silver jewelry cleaner: 1. Line a glass bowl with aluminum foil, shiny side facing outward. 2. Place the silver/jewelry in the bowl making sure it's touching the foil. 3. Cover the jewelry with baking soda - just enough so that you can't see it. 4. Add boiling water - enough to immerse the jewelry. 5. Let soak for 3 to 5 minutes ( or less if it's not really dirty).
