I used the aluminum foil method many times for years. The first time that I tried it, I was SO amazed with the results, as I had some silver jewelry that I’d neglected for quite some time. It didn’t even appear to be “silver”. For the reason that I usually clean numerous pieces at one time, I tear the aluminum foil up into little pieces so each piece of jewelry will be in contact with the foil. I add very hot water, baking soda, and a few drops of dish detergent). I place in a bowl with a well sealing lid and shake gently for about 30 seconds, then let soak for 10-15 minutes. Using a soft bristle brush and the liquid, I gently scrub the jewelry. Last, I rinse and buff dry.
This works great, but be careful with gem stones. Some of them like amethyst and emerald and any others which are in the quartz family are heat sensitive. Just put them in once the water has cooled down some. Cubic Zirconia are fazed by anything. They are lab grown under high heat and pressure. I fire them in a kiln at 1650 degrees in silver metal clay jewelry, and they are bothered at all.

I just tried this on my Tiffany’s heart and ball chain and realized after I started boiling the water I was out of baking soda…put the vigenar and salt in the boiling water anyways and poured into the pan. Wosrt thing that I figured could happen would be it wouldn’t work and I wasted a little vinegar and water..as i pourd the steaming hot liquid into the pan I WATCHED it get cleaned instantly. This works without the baking soda! I wished I had taken a video of it! Coolest thing to see happen! Thank you!
