Silver Cleaner

April 07, 2014 - Helpful Hints

One of our return guests left this recipe/hint for us. 

This is the easy way  to clean silver 

 

It is better done in a dishpan

* Mix  together 1/3 cup salt  & 1/3 cup Calgon water softener

Place tinfoil in the bottom of the pan

Pour very hot water (can be boiling) into the pan

Sprinkle approximately 2 to 3 tbsps of mixture into the pan on the tin foil

Place silver items in the pan - touching the foil.

Let sit for a couple of minutes rotating pieces so that all the area is covered.

Rinse.

Leave longer for very tarnished items.
