What is the best way to polish silver?

There are silver cream polishes that come with a little soft scrub sponge. That kind is good for silver pieces like jewelry or antique pieces where you want more control over the areas you want cleaned. Some older pieces have a nice black patina in the grooves that give the silver depth and character. You don’t want to lose that beautiful aged look. Just polish up the general piece to give it a good shine. The creams work very well but they do take more elbow grease to get the piece clean. You may have to rinse and repeat to make sure you get everything you want cleaned. Make sure you get all the cream off though. There are also silver dips that work quickly. They are a liquid you set the piece in for a prescribed amount of time. These don’t always work on really dark areas of tarnish spots and they may actually make pieces look over polished. The dips are incredibly simple to use though. You can make your own dip too by putting a large piece of aluminum foil on the bottom of a mixing bowl then fill the bowl with boiling water. Set the piece or pieces in you want to polish and pour baking soda in. This works the same way those gadgets they sold on television as some sort of magical silver polisher, but for a lot less money. Try it one time just to see it work. It is kind of fun to do. Mama Nono
