How To Clean Silver With Aluminum Foil And Baking Soda

Cleaning silver with aluminum foil and baking soda is one of the easiest and cheapest methods to get your cherished pieces looking shiny and new. In this tutorial we will show you how simple it is to clean your silver with aluminum foil and baking soda.



  • Silver jewelry or cutlery
  • Glass bowl
  • Boiling water
  • Baking soda



  1. Place a sheet of standard aluminum foil, shiny side up, in the bottom of a glass bowl.
  2. Set the silver objects on top of the aluminum foil. Make sure the silver touches the aluminum.
  3. Fill the container with boiling water, preferably from a tea kettle or other container from which you can pour it safely.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon (or small bag) of baking soda per cup of water. The solution will bubble and froth a bit.

  6. Carefully remove your silver items. You can rinse it in clear water.
