Clean Your Silver Jewelry

Polish the silver with a soft, lint-free dust cloth. If needed, add a few drops of water to the cleaning rag to wipe away stickier buildup, then follow up with a dry cleaning rag to absorb excess moisture.
Spread a sheet of tinfoil across the base of a large skillet or basin, leaving the shiny side up.
Place all of the silver into the skillet or basin, with all pieces touching the foil. Pour in enough boiling water to submerge the silver.
Add 1 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of washing soda per quart of water used. Let the silver soak for 10 minutes.
Remove the silver with tongs or let the water cool until you are able to handle the silver items. Rinse the silver with warm water and polish with a soft cloth.

Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!!!!


  1. Hey, what is washing soda? Baking soda? Any advice on severely tarished silver, or is time and elbow grease the answer?

  2. Hi,

    I really enjoyed your blog posts. It was certainly entertaining and very educational.

    I would like to see whether you'd be open for guest contributions. I am looking to write something related to your site and thought that the topics I had in mind may go well with your blog.

    I was thinking about the following subjects:

    1. How to get rid of toxic chemicals in your home
    2. Is being frugal taking up too much of your time?

    What do you think about these? If you're interested to receive a custom article which is also absolutely free, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you - or if you have another topic you'd like to see covered, I am more than happy to write on that.

    Thanks and I look forward to your response.

  3. Washing soda is found in the laundry isle (I get it at Wal*Mart) the brand I have is Arm & Hammer.... Washing soda is not to be confused with baking soda... they are completely different... and yes elbow grease is key
