Introduction: Eco Silver Polishing

About: My LED (I mean flashlight) Gummies profile photo is inspired by the LED Throwies.

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.)
