Silver Polish, Polishing Cloth and Emergency Polish

Author/Submitted by: Make It Yourself
Servings: 1
Categories: Household / Information

Ingredients:
    -----SILVER POLISH-----
    Ammonia
    Whiting
    -----SILVER POLISHING CLOTH-----
1  C  Warm water
1  Tsp  Ammonia
1  Tsp  Whiting (ground chalk, sold
    hardware stores)
    -----EMERGENCY POLISH-----
    Toothpaste

Directions:
Do not use "dip it" polishes. They are quick but destroy the subtleties of the finish. Don't use a salt polish because salt pits silver. Tarnish is oxidation and polishing rubs it off. Salad dressings, eggs and fruit juices are the chief culprits to causing tarnish, along with exposure to air. Silver Polish: Mix ammonia and whiting to form a paste. Polish silver, rinse well; buff dry. Silver Polishing Cloth: Mix in a basin. Soak an old thin cloth napkin or tea towel in this mixture. Hang it up to dry over the basin. Use it to give a quick once over to silver articles as needed. Emergency polish: Try toothpaste. This will shine up silver but be sure to rinse. Shared by Sherilyn Schamber
