Cleaning your Hobbit Jewelry

Cleaning Silver With Aluminum Foil and Baking Soda
 
 This method of cleaning silver works wonders even for heavily tarnished pieces.
 
First, bring a large pot of water to the boil on the stovetop. Make sure that the pot is large enough to fit all of your tarnished silver items. Don’t overfill the pot (leave at least two inches of space at the top).
 
When the water boils, remove the pot from the heat. Place a piece of aluminum foil into the bottom of your pot, and place your silver items on top, immersed in the boiling water. Start shaking baking soda into the pot. It will foam and bubble, and you’ll notice a sulfuric smell, like rotten eggs. Make sure the jewelry is in contact with the silver foil.
 
The chemical reaction will (almost magically) remove the tarnish from your silver, as the tarnish will become attracted to the aluminum foil instead of your silver piece. Keep sprinkling in more baking soda until your silver is shiny and clean or until the liquid no longer foams.
 
The water has to be hot for this to be effective, but if you do it correctly, it works like a charm on tarnished silver. This method is the best method for removing tarnish from vintage silver, as it is more effective than many silver polishes. It even gets into the nooks and crannies where you wouldn’t be able to hand-polish the tarnish away.
 
Once the tarnish is gone, wash the silver with gentle soap and water to remove the rest of the baking soda. If there are a few spots of tarnish left, they should wash off when rubbed gently with a soft cloth.
 
If you have silver jewelry set with gemstones, I would be careful to using this method, as it may cause damage to porous gemstones such as emeralds. This method works well for silver platters, flatware, bowls, chains, serve ware, and many other silver or silver-plated items. It will certainly clean your Lord of the Rings Jewelry items.
 
DO NOT use toothpaste as suggested by some web sites. Toothpaste is an abrasive and will scratch off protective layers that your jewelry items may have.
