    No MSG!'s Note:

    I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from wire-sculpture.com.

      DO NOT USE THIS. Just turned my favorite Tiffany's necklace black. I'm furious. Do not do this cleaner.

      The combination of baking soda & boiling water is a universally accepted way to clean all sterling silver. However, you MUST lay the sterling on aluminum foil or else the jewelry piece or whatever you are cleaning will turn black! It is the aluminum which causes the silver oxidation to move from the silver to the foil. (And, if your silver turns black because you failed to use the aluminum, just re-do the process with the foil & the staining will reverse itself.) Hope this helps!

      Awful for silver jewelry!!! It turned my silver Nelle and Lizzy ring yellow and took a ton of polishing to get rid of it. It also took the patina off my Pandora ring. Just want folks to be aware that this is not safe for sterling silver.........
