We really hate it when our silver becomes tarnished or dull. That’s why did some research on how to make it shiny again! Apparently, the weirdest things in our house can be quite useful for such a mission.
Without further ado, here are 7 weird and surprisingly effective tools to polish your silver:
1. Aluminum foil
This is quite simple, however, might take a little time. Put a piece of aluminum foil into a pot with one liter of water. Add one tablespoon of baking soda and bring it to a boil. Afterward, put your silver jewelry or cutlery into the boiling water. Hold it there for at least 10–15 seconds. Finally, take out your silver from the pot with a pair of tongs. The brightness is restored!
2. Laundry detergent
Weirdly enough, “the recipe” is almost the same as the one above. Instead of using baking soda, you should use one tablespoon of laundry detergent. The water doesn’t necessarily have to be boiling – hot is fine enough. Let your silver soak in the bowl for a minute. After that rinse your silver with clean water and let it dry up.
You might be surprised even more to know that ketchup can help you with your tarnished silver. Simply squirt a small amount on a paper towel and apply it on the silver. Let it sit for 10–15 minutes. After that, rub with a cloth and rinse with clean water. Simple as that.
4. Lemon-lime soda
This is probably a better way of using soda instead of drinking it. Simply put your silver in a bowl of lemon-lime soda and let it relish there for minimum an hour. Rinse thoroughly.
5. Window cleaner
While cleaning your windows try using the liquids to polish your silver. Spray window cleaner on a rug, and gently scrub your dull silver. This simple trick should definitely help.
