2. Polish tarnished silver
There’s just no need for toxic silver polish if you have a box of baking soda on hand.
To clean your good silver, add aluminum foil to a glass baking dish and put all your tarnished silver items on top, making sure each piece is touching the foil. Then add a mixture of boiling water and baking soda to the dish and watch as the tarnish naturally disappears! Polish as usual with a dry cloth and your silver will look new again.
