Cinderella Solutions~Cleaning Silver

Last Christmas my sister got me one of the items off of my "Lolita Dream List", the BABY Ribbon Lace Up Ring. It is silver, and has unfortunately begun to tarnish. Today I am going to share how I managed to clean my ring and also my mom's VERY tarnished silver amulet necklace.

Before. Can you see the tarnishing the folds of the ribbon?

All you need is:
Baking Soda
Water
Soft Cloth

Mix up a thick paste using the ratio of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water. I used 1TBS to 1tsp proportions

Using a soft cloth, buff the silver, and see how shiny it becomes! Very easy and extremely cheap.

Yay!
