How to restore tarnished silver quickly and naturally

From jewelry to cutlery, from wedding gifts to decorations, there are many silver items that we can have in our home. Unfortunately, however, these items tend to turn black over time and take on a worn and old appearance.

Although there are many special products for cleaning silver on the market, sometimes their results are not satisfactory. Not to mention the risk of exposing our health to the chemical compounds these products contain.

But fortunately, there are even more effective natural alternatives to clean tarnished silver and restore it to its original appearance. Below we list the most effective ones.

Bicarbonate . Bring some water to the boil and then mix it with a little baking soda until a creamy mixture is formed. Wash the silver item you want to clean with soap and water and then dry it well. Apply the baking soda mixture to the item and scrub it with a toothbrush. Be careful not to scratch it. Finally, rinse well and dry.

Salt . Line a container with foil and fill with hot water. Add a handful of salt and dip the silver object into it. Wait a few minutes, then remove the item and dry it well.

Baking soda and vinegar . Pour vinegar and baking soda onto a cloth that we will use to wrap the silver object. Let it sit for a few minutes and then scrub it with a toothbrush. Wipe the items with a clean cloth and dry them well.
