Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing. After cleaning your silver jewelry, prevent it from tarnishing by applying a thin coat of Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing with a soft cloth. Wipe off any excess, leaving behind a very thin, virtually invisible protective coating.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. To remove tarnish on silver jewelry, mix a thick paste of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda with water, apply to the silver with a damp sponge, rub, rinse, and buff dry.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and Reynolds Wrap. To clean tarnish from silver jewelry effortlessly, line a metal cake pan with Reynolds Wrap and fill with enough water to cover the silverware. Addtwo tablespoons Arm & Hammer Baking Soda per quart of water. Heat the water above 150 degrees Fahren heit. Place the tarnished silver in the pan so it touches the aluminum foil. Do not let the water boil. The hydrogen pro duced by heated baking soda combines with the sulfur in the tarnish, removing the stains. (This technique also removes the patina from silver jewelry, so make certain you’re willing to do that before embracing this cleaning method.)

Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste. A mild abrasive, Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste does an excellent job cleaning silver jewelry. Squeeze a dab of toothpaste on a soft, clean cloth, rub the jewelry vigorously, and rinse thoroughly with water.

Heinz Ketchup. To remove black gunk from silver jewelry, squirt some Heinz Ketchup on a paper towel and rub it gently into the tarnish. For stubborn tarnish, coat the item with ketchup, wait fifteen minutes, then rub the item with a soft cloth, and rinse clean. (Do not soak silver jewelry in ketchup too long; the acids can ruin the finish.)

McCormick Cream of Tartar. Use a paste made from McCor mick Cream of Tartar and water to clean silver jewelry.

Morton Salt and ReaLemon. To clean tarnish from silver jew elry, mix two tablespoons Morton Salt to one tablespoon ReaLemon lemon juice. Gently rub the paste on the tarnished silver item and then wipe clean with a dry cloth.

Parsons’ Ammonia and Oral-B Toothbrush. Mix one part Par sons’ Ammonia and two parts warm water and soak silver jewelry in the solution for five minutes. Brush the jewelry with a clean, used, soft Oral-B Toothbrush and rinse clean with water.

Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer. To clean silver jewelry, use a few drops of Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer—the soapless, anti bacterial hand sanitizer—and wipe clean with a soft cloth.

Simple Green. Place silver jewelry in a drinking glass, fill with Simple Green all-purpose cleaner (from the trigger-spray bot tle), swirl the jewelry a few times, and let stand for one hour. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry.
