If you're gearing up for a large dinner party or just looking for an excuse to use your fine silverware, remember to give it a good cleaning the all-natural way. Keep reading for simple tips on how to leave those cleaners behind.
- Do it yourself at home with supplies that are probably already stocked in your cabinets. First, line a shallow pan with aluminum foil. Next, make a simple solution with 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and water and fill the bottom of the pan.
- Silverware then needs to be thoroughly rinsed under warm running water for several minutes. After giving it a good rinse, let the silverware completely air dry on a clean towel.
- Buff silverware with a nice, clean, soft cloth. Take each piece individually and gently rub all of the water spots off. Your silverware should be as good as new now without having to use any harmful chemicals.
