Polishing the Silver

Ok, usually I post the cards, canvas or layouts that I have made, but I had to share this.  I was reading U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton and early in the book one of the characters was working in the kitchen polishing the silver.  The recipe givent in the book was to take an 8 quart pot of water with crumpled up aluminum foil in the bottom, once the water is up to a rolling boil, add 1/4 cup of baking soda.

I live in Florida and all of my silver jewelry tarnishes almost instantly and I can't keep up with my silver polishing cloth.  So I spent the afternoon boiling my jewelry with the recipe above and I can't believe how easy it was and how amazing it all turned out!!!
