Do you remember when I warned you about keeping your silver jewelry out of Lake Atanasovsko? 🤭 Unfortunately no one warned me, and You don’t want to know how they looked, but I will show you anyway.
So it was orange and black and everything in between…
Luckily I still remember how grandma cleaned silver with vinegar and baking soda (sodium carbonate). Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 tablespoons of baking soda
- 1 cup of vinegar
- 1 old toothbrush
Put the jewelry in a bowl, cover it with baking soda and turn the vinegar over it, then leave it there for like an hour, brush it and rinse with cold water. And you’re done. This method is perfect if you would like to keep some highlights and shadow. I love when silver stuff have an antic look, but from time to time I want to give them back their natural shine.
But in case you’re jewelry are super oxidated like mine were this time, you’ll probably need a deeper cleaning, so follow these steps:
- Boil some water
- Put tinfoil on the bottom of a bowl. Put the jewelry inside and cover it again with 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- Pour the boiling water over it
Here you go. They must look like new. 🤍 A bit even too shiny for my taste, but way better then before.
