Homemade Silver Jewelry Cleaner

January 23, 2014

Who wants to wear silver jewelry that’s tarnished and no longer glimmers and glistens under the lights? You want to clean your silver necklace or ring so that it looks as good as the day you bought it, right? Learning how to clean silver jewelry is essential in prolonging the life of your precious pieces. Here’s a home made cleaner to keep your bling shining.

Gather Your Supplies

Luckily, to keep silver looking its best, you only need a few items you probably already have in your home. You’ll need baking soda, salt, liquid dish soap, a large pot, aluminum foil, a colander, a large towel and a large plastic spoon.

Un-tarnish Your Silver

Line the pot with the foil. This will prevent the pot from getting permanently tarnished during the process. Place the pot on the stove, and combine these ingredients into the pot:

  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup soap
  • 1/2 gallon water (try to use filtered or bottled water, not tap water)

Stir the mixture, then add your tarnished silver to the pot. Bring the pot to a low boil for about five minutes. Remove it from the heat, and give it plenty of time to cool. Once it’s cool, pour the contents into the strainer and rinse your jewelry with cool water. You can use tap water for this step. Let your newly sparkling jewelry dry on the towel. Check the foil carefully to make sure no jewelry is hiding within it before you throw it away!
