Silver can become tarnished due to the oxidation process and may need a bit more cleaning than a polishing cloth can do. Here is an effective method to clean your silver. Boil enough water in a small pan, enough to submerge your jewelry. Add a tablespoon of baking soda, and a few small torn pieces of aluminum foil in the water. Bubbling should occur, giving off a slight rotten egg smell (reaction from sulfuric gases being released). Place your jewelry in the solution, and with a plastic or wooden utensil, stir your jewelry around making sure that the silver surface comes in contact with the aluminum foil. You will see your silver turning bright again. Take out and rinse under tap water. Use a towel to dry and a polishing cloth if needed.
