How to clean your fine silverware


Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday and I don’t know about you, but I just pulled out my fine silverware and realized it needs a good cleaning! With numerous guest arriving in the next day and limited amount of time till Thanksgiving I immediately hopped on the internet to look for quick and easy was to clean my fine silverware.

Here is what I found:alt

  • Line a pan with tin foil
  • Lay out your silverware on the aluminum foil
  • Fill the pan with 2 – 3 inches of hot water
  • Mix with two teaspoons of baking soda
  • A teaspoon of salt
  • Let the silverware sit for around 10 – 15 minutes
  • **All pieces of silverware must be touching the aluminum foil as the chemical reaction allows the transfer of tarnish from the silverware to the aluminum foil
  • Remove the silverware and polish with a microfiber cloth

Viola, your silverware will shine like new!

This was so simple and easy to do! With Thanksgiving in just a few days what are you waiting for polish your tarnish silverware today.
