How to Clean Silver Jewellery in Seconds: Quick and Easy Tips

Sparkling Silver Jewellery in Seconds!

After much coveting from my two little girls, yesterday I decided to have a jewellery sort out and donate to them anything that I no longer wear.

I actually discovered that I no longer wear many of my necklaces because they looked so dull and tarnished.

Rather than donating everything to the girls I remembered a tip about cleaning silver jewellery I read years ago in the Dairy Diary (where would we be without it?)

How to Clean Silver Jewellery

To clean my necklaces, I covered a saucer with aluminium foil and added 1 tbsp bicarbonate of soda, 1 tbsp salt and stirred in a little hot water.

I then removed all the pendants from the chains and put the chains into the water.

After swirling the necklaces in the mixture I rinsed each one to reveal a super-sparkly chain.


It was like having a new set of jewellery to wear (though much cheaper.)

  1. Hi, thanks for the info. I also have some cutlery. Can I clean it together with the jewels or should I clean them separately? I don’t want to damage the jewelry, I heard that silver is easy to scratch. Thanks again for the article, keep up the good work!
