Cleaning Tarnished SilverThe short answer: A good silver polish and "elbow grease".

There are a number of ways to clean your silver, but you need to be careful as to what methods you use. Many of the over-the-counter silver jewelry cleaners contain harmful carcinogens that have been known to cause cancer, so you might want to avoid those for your silver-cleaning needs.

The best way to keep silver clean is to avoid tarnish to begin with. To do this, make sure that you store your silver in a zip-lock baggie. When silver gets dirty or tarnished, create a baking soda paste with water and baking soda and gently rub the paste all over the silver with a damp cloth until the silver is clean. Rinse the silver off and make sure you dry it well before storing it or wearing it. People have also been known to use this same method using toothpaste instead of baking soda and water.

Answer

I put baking soda and boiling water in an aluminum baking pan and heat it on my stove top then i dip my silver items in it and let soak for a few seconds, they come out quite clean with little 'elbow grease'.
