Mr. Clean might be great for gold but it's dead in the water when
it comes to silver.
Not true! A receipe that was passed on by a friend of mine is: 1
capful Mr. Clean w/ 1 cup HOT water, in a glass dish with
This works on sterling silver, but not plate (turns plate
black). I find it works best if you put a piece of aluminum foil
flat in the glass dish, pour the Mr. Clean & hot water in, then
submerse your piece. Don't leave it in longer than necessary.
Admittedly this is not as effective as an ultrasonic, or even a
dip, but it's great in a pinch.
