Combine the ingredients above in a clean kitchen sink. Put your tarnished silver (and silver-plated) items into the sink, and let them sit for a few minutes. Watch as the tarnish disappears from the silverware and reappears on the foil. It’s a natural chemical reaction, and a great way to teach the kids some science!

Note: This trick works so well that it will clean out the nooks and crannies that give some silverware the “aged” look, so you may only want to do it occasionally.
