Cleaning Silver jewelry without chemicals

I hate cleaning silver jewelry. All that rubbing, polishing and trying to get into all the nooks and the smell and feel of silver polish...Yuck! I have looked for years for a better solution and nothing really worked as well as I'd like it to. Until now. I found a great way to clean Sterling Silver jewelry. It's simple, cheap and does not use any heavy chemicals. In fact, you should have everything you need in your kitchen:

Glass baking pan
Baking Soda
Boiling Water
Aluminum Foil.

All you need to do is line the baking pan with the aluminum foil. (I used the recycled kind and it worked great) Place jewelry on top of the foil. Sprinkle with baking soda. Pour boiling water to cover the jewelry in the pan and let it set for a few minutes. It will bubble and smell....the chemical reaction causes a sulfur smell. It's not too strong though, and it goes away quickly. 

Fish the jewelry out with some tongs and rinse under cool water. I wiped it off with a soft cloth to remove any residue and it was good as new!

I honestly couldn't believe how well this worked! It also words perfectly for silver serving forks, spoons and such! It's fast, cheap, easy and chemical free....sounds like it's right up my alley!
