Introduction: Eco Silver Polishing
A quick and easy way to polish oxidized silver jewelry and other stuff without using toxic* chemicals.
This technique is especially good if you have intricate filigreed jewelry for example.
*or at least they don't SMELL toxic. Are they?
Step 1: Put Baking Soda and Foil in Water
I put about 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a piece of foil about 4" square or so.
Boil it until the silver starts to look silver.
(Unfortunately this doesn't clean my burnt up old pot) ;)
Step 2: Voila
I don't use precise measurements but it seems to work every time within a couple of minutes!
(The black part on the leaves in the jewelry shown here is intended to be black. You can see the rest came out silver.)
