Silverware > Silverware

Alberto VOS Conditioning Hairdressing. Once you've cleaned those silver candlesticks, picture frames, and silver ware sets, you can prevent them from tarnishing by applying thin coat of Alberto VO5 Conditioning Hairdressing with soft cloth. Wipe off the excess, leaving behind a very thin virtually invisible protective coating. VO5’s organic protectants actually prevent tarnishing. Just be sure to wash the silverware thoroughly before using.

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

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and Reynolds Wrap. For the best and easiest way to polish silver, line a metal cake pan with Reynolds Wrap and fill with enough water to cover the silver ware. Add two tablespoons baking soda per quart of water Heat the water above 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the tarnished silverware in the pan so it touches the aluminum foil. Do not let the water boil. The hydrogen produced by heated baking soda combines with the sulfur in the tarnish, removing the stains. (This technique also removes the patina from silverware, so make certain you’re willing to do that before embracing this cleaning method.]

Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste. To clean silverware, squeeze a dollop of Colgate Regular Flavor Toothpaste on a soft, clean cloth and rub the silverware. The toothpaste is a mild abrasive, so it does a great job cleaning the silverware. Rinse thoroughly. And now you won’t have to brush after meals (just kidding).

Crayola Chalk. Place a piece of Crayola Chalk in your silver ware chest to absorb moisture and prevent tarnish from forming on silverware.

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

Kingsford’s Corn Starch. To polish silverware, make a paste with Kingsford’s Corn Starch and water. Apply with a damp cloth, let dry, and then rub off with cheesecloth, which is a mild abrasive.

McCormick Cream of Tartar. To clean silver, make a paste with McCormick Cream of Tartar and water. Apply with a damp cloth, let dry, rub off, and rinse clean.

Morton Salt and ReaLemon. Mix two tablespoons Morton Salt and one tablespoon ReaLemon lemon juice. Gently rub the paste on the tarnished silver, wipe clean with a dry cloth, and rinse. Repeat if necessary.

Nestlé Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk and Heinz White Vinegar. To polish silverware, mix five ounces Nestlé Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk powder, twelve ounces water, and one table spoon Heinz White Vinegar (or ReaLemon lemon juice) in a pan. Let the silver stand overnight in the mixture, rinse clean, and dry thoroughly.

Parsons’ Ammonia. To polish silverware, mix equal parts Par sons’ Ammonia with silver paste polish, apply with a soft cloth, and rinse clean.

Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer. Squirt a few drops of Purell Instant Hand Sanitizer on a clean cloth and rub it on the silver to remove the tarnish.
