    Works great! I used this on some silver candle sticks. Will use again. Thanks Chelle_N for posting!

    I have a silver tea set that was given to me by my Aunt a couple of years ago that I have never gotten polished to the shine I know it can be. I tried this recipe and it worked very well! When you dip the silver in the water solution, you can smell the silver oxidizing--I guess that is what the smell is. After immersing all three pieces, one at a time, I rinsed and dried each one of them. When drying, lots of the tarnish just wiped right off onto the towel. My teapot, creamer, and sugar holder really polished up. The base that it sits on didn't do as well, but I am very pleased with the results! I tried two other silver plates and a silver cup. One plate polished up great, the other plate and the cup didn't do so well. I wonder what makes some things react to the cleaning solution and others not really much at all? I will be using this method again. Oh, I posted three pictures. The first picture is a before picture and the last two pictures are after pictures. Thanks for posting, Chelle N!
