Hi all - 

found this handy dandy tarnish remover recipe on Pinterest recently and gave it a try - and it really worked!  Fast and easy and you probably have all the ingredients already in your kitchen pantry. 

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon table Salt
1/2 cup White Vinegar
1 cup Boiling Water
Soft towel to dry and buff
Aluminum Tin Foil
Bowl

Tarnished sterling jewelry. 

-------------------------------------------------------

1. Line your bowl with tin foil shiny side up

2. Add Baking Soda and Salt  - mix

3.  Slowly add vinegar - solution will fizz - and stir.

4. Add boiling water

5. Place jewelry into the solution for a soak and watch the tarnish disappear! 

6. Rinse well with clear water, Dry and Buff with a soft cloth to a shine. 

Voila! Shiny pretty jewelry!  The solution will still work even after it cools, but works best when the water is hot. I used it on all kinds of jewelry, crystals and stones - even pearls and it worked great.  It even brightened copper jewelry, but did not make much difference on brass.  Crystals and Stones were super clean! Enjoy!
