1/2 cup – 1 cup baking soda or Borax
aluminum pan (no substitutions)
Place aluminum pan in the sink and add your sterling or plated silver. Add enough baking soda or borax to cover silverware. Pour boiling water to cover the utensils. When the tarnish disappears, remove silverware and buff with a soft cotton cloth.
