It really does work!

I'd seen the pictures. And read the procedure. I just found it hard to believe that you could clean silver so easily and without harsh chemicals.

But, it's true!

The pictures don't lie. While I think I need to do this a second time to get the little remaining tarnish, I'm satisfied with it right now. 

  Start by putting some aluminum foil into a dishpan. The foil will need to come into contact with the tarnished silver you put in.
This is the tarnished silverplate tea pot.

  Pour 1 cup baking soda into the foil.
Place your silver item into the foil.
Pour 1 gallon boiling water over it all. This will bubble.
 The tarnish leaves immediately. 
Turn your item over.
If heavily tarnished, you may need to repeat the process. 

 Voila! Much cleaner!
