Ok, I've read so many replies saying that the soda/aluminium
foil/warm water trick works like magic, that I have to say that when I
tried it, on old silver-plated flatware, it didn't work.
What did I do wrong? Not enough soda?
I've also seen some reference to using "washing soda." I've got a box
of this, in addition to regular ole "baking soda" (sodium
bicarbonate), does either work as well as the other?
So, what are the proportions? One cup of soda to a gallon of water?
Karen, for jewelry in the case, I'd say a "sunshine cloth" would be
most convenient, least messy. And waxing the jewelry to prevent
tarnish sounds like a good idea, too. Or, what about those
anti-tarnish sheets I've seen reference to?
