I am a silver girl. Ok, sometimes white gold, but mostly silver. But the problem with silver is that it tarnishes. Before I went green I had this silver polish that was so toxic I got a migraine every time I had to use it. Since going green my silver has been sadly neglected...until today.
I had heard that one could polish silver with a baking soda paste. So today I broke out the jewelry box that my brother gave me years ago that I haven't cleaned or polished since and gave it some TLC.
I started with my tarnished box and my baking soda paste (just combine enough baking soda and water to get paste consistency, a little goes a long way). I applied the paste directly to the box and scrubbed with a hard bristled brush (old toothbrush will work fine). I found circular motions worked best. Here it is half finished so you can see the difference.
And here it is after about 10 minutes total elbow grease and a little baking soda paste.
Best of all, no headache! Now on to the jewelry. What do you think? Have you tried this? Are you going to? Any tips?
