Someone told me about using water softner in a alumminum pan
Its amazingly simple! I usually use a Pyrex (glass) dish and line
with aluminum foil, because then I can either toss out or recycle the
foil. An aluminum pan would work as well… or even better. I
wouldn’t use it for cooking later, though!
Fill the container with hot water and toss in about 1/4 cup of
baking soda. Stir to dissolve and place your silver pieces in the
bath, in contact with the aluminum. Leave it for a while, then pull
the pieces out and rinse. Ta-Da!
Seems overly simple, but its reasonably effective and totally
harmless to people and the environment!
