I pulled out an old silver choker (flat and plain) and it was pretty tarnished so I cleaned it with that jewelry cleaner that you submerge the piece into and it's better but not as shiny and beautiful as when I bought it. What is the best way to clean silver?

You will need: a shallow bowl, baking soda, aluminum foil, warm water & a soft brush. Place the foil in the bottom of the bowl and then add your jewelry. Cover with baking soda, and fold the foil over the jewelry making a little pillow...don't close it off completely because water won't be able to mix with the soda. Pour warm water over the entire pillow and let set for a couple hours. After that time, remove everything and rinse off the jewelry while gently brushing away any dirt. You might have to do process over again depending on how tarnished it is.

I put the silver in the vinegar, about 10 minutes, then polish it with a soft cloth.

Put a sheet of aluminum foil in a pan and add 2-3 inches of water on top of it.

Mix:

1 tsp of salt
1 teaspoon of the baking soda
Bring the mix to a boil, add the silver and let it boil gently for 2-3 minutes. Make sure that all the silver pieces are covered by the water. Rinse, buff, and dry.

You can buy silver cleaner at the grocery store,and it usually comes with a sponge inside so you can clean it.....
