This process does remove tarnish but doesn't polish it. It also is reversing the electroplating process which removes silver as well as the tarnish. If you want a great silver cleaner, check out Silvermate liquid silver cleaner: www.silvermatecompany.com I have used it for several years in my restaurant.

its called ionic transfer. hot water baking soda super saturated solution combined with any aluminum does just what you saw only a lot cheaper
