  • Baking soda
  • Water


Step 1: Make a paste with approximately equal amounts of the ingredients.

Step 3: Rinse the silver under running water, and then dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Please note that this recipe helps remove tarnish from the silver, but after removing the tarnish the silver will still need to be polished, such as with this homemade silver polish.
