4 Easy Ways to Polish Your Silverware

Silverware with water spots and greasy fingerprints are unsightly. Here are four easy ways to maintain the gleam and shine of your silverware.

1. Make them shine. It’s true, you can polish your tarnished silverware using non-gel, plain toothpaste. But toothpaste can only be used for satin or matte silver and not sterling silver as it contains abrasive ingredients. Swap out the toothpaste and try out this method instead: fill an aluminium baking tray with hot water, baking soda, vinegar, and salt. Put in the utensils that need shining. The reaction that goes on in the tray will ensure the stains are transferred onto the aluminium instead. Remove your utensils with tongs and buff with a rag.
