Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with the shiny portion facing upwards. Place the silverware in a single layer in the pan being certain all of them make direct contact with the foil. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Sprinkle 4 teaspoons baking soda over the utensils, then pour the water over them. Let stand a few minutes in order for the chemical reaction to remove the tarnish. Once shiny, remove them from the solution with a pair of tongs & rinse them under water. Dry the pieces & use a little commercial cleaner such as Wright’s Silver Polish & a soft cloth to buff them further for a beautiful shine. Wash the silverware well with soapy water before using. The silverware should only need a quick additional polish or two with commercial cleaner during the upcoming months. Tuck away the silver when not in use by placing in zip top bags to keep it looking its’ best longer.
