Seldom Silver

Seldom silver is what I am naming this post because I hardly ever polish my silver.Oh wait, what was that? I never polish my silver because it is a pain in the toosh! I did once,yes,that was about 6 years ago. I could have gone another couple years with out it, but then I saw this post done by "Forever Decorating" . She said it was easy to clean your silver without polishing. The best part was that I didn't have to buy anything. I had all the stuff!
Woo woo! I think I jumped up and started the process within 2 minutes. Everyone was surprised to see me get all excited about cleaning because the rest of the house was a disaster. But this was fun stuff, doing everyday chores could wait. Here have a look ,do you see a difference?

You know that my friend was over the other day and she didn't even know this was silver before? How embarrassing.  Alright already how do you do this ?
            You will need the following items found below.
Don't forget the old rags! 
I lined my sink with Aluminum foil and then filled it with hot water. I then added about 5 tblsp of the baking 
soda detergent . 

I find it best to rotate your pieces every so often . After about 5 or 6 minutes per side. Then I got out my scrub pad and washed that gunk away! For more information remember to visit Forever Decorating . I don't like to use people's ideas and not give them credit. Thank you Forever Decorating!
Oh on a random thought, if this was boring to you then maybe the waffles and ice dream with apple syrup doesn't sound as bad. We had this for dinner tonight yummy! You can get the Apple syrup recipe here,Hot apple syrup
