So I went to this link and found out you can do this cool thing with tarnished silver- just put it in a receptacle lined with aluminum foil with the silver bits touching the aluminum, then boil water, put baking soda in the water, and pour over the stuff in the container - big foamy action, you can see the tarnish in the water. I think this might be fun to do with kids on a rainy day. Above, before - below, after. Alot easier than polishing, and you don't end up with bits of polish enmeshed with the silver. I'll be showing some more kitchen sink action here soon. Did I mention my father was a chemist?
