Silver jewelry is a beautiful accessory. If it starts to tarnish, however, the look will be ruined. A professional cleaning substance can restore the look of the jewelry, but it can be expensive. Instead, try an easy remedy made from items you probably already have in your home.

Things You'll Need

Cover a bowl or plate with aluminum foil, silver side up.

Add hot water, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of salt to the bowl and mix it until the powder dissolves.

Place the tarnished silver ring in liquid for at least 10 minutes.

Rinse the ring and dry it to reveal the shine.
