    Ya, I googled it too...but there were a million different things. Go figure. I just remembered that I thought I should copy your post down at the time, because it sounded the easiest and best. Of course I didn't do it. Thanks. Hubby worked in a mine that gave him a bunch of silver plaques when he left, and I am embarassed to say that they are black.

    I can't wrap my mind around a band, or any celebrity for that matter, that charges fans $500 to meet them. They should get over themselves and thank the fans nicely that they even bothered to buy their music and shelled out the cash to see them live in the first place.

    I just did a quick search in here because I remember that I had wanted that formula as well. Anyway, here's the formula that Newf originally posted:

    As silver oxidizes it will tarnish. This layer of oxidation can be removed without polishing and scrubbing by simply dipping your silver in this non-toxic electrochemical dip. Another big advantage to using a dip is that the liquid can reach places a polishing cloth cannot.
    Difficulty: Easy
    Time Required: Minutes
    Here's How:
    Line the bottom of the sink or a glass baking dish with a sheet of aluminum foil.
    Fill the foil-lined container with steaming hot water.
    Add salt (sodium chloride) and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) to the water. Some recipes call for 2 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt, whereas others call for 2 tablespoons each of baking soda and salt. Personally, I wouldn't measure the amounts... just add a bit of each substance.
    Drop the silver items into the container so that they are touching each other and resting on the foil. You will be able to watch the tarnish disappear.
    Leave heavily tarnished items in the solution for as long as 5 minutes. Otherwise, remove the silver when it appears clean.
    Rinse the silver with water and gently buff it dry with a soft towel.
    Ideally, you should store your silver in a low-humidity environment. You can place a container of activated charcoal or a piece of chalk in the storage area to minimize future tarnish.

    Tips:
    Use care when polishing or dipping silver plated items. It is easy to wear away the thin layer of silver and cause more harm than good through overcleaning.
    Minimize exposing your silver to substances which contain sulfur (e.g., mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool) as the sulfur will cause corrosion.
    Using your silver flatware/holloware or wearing silver jewelry helps to keep it free from tarnish.
    What You Need:
    Sink or glass pan
    Hot water
    Baking soda
    Salt
    Aluminum foil
    Tarnished silver

    That is funny! It's nice you remember those things that your Dad said to you.

    Well as sad as I've felt today over Mona....a teeny tiny bright spot is my little spot in 'ole Alabama is getting some snow....now I know that our snow isn't nowhere near other people's snow but its all we've got....

    Its 1:00 a.m. and its really just a light dusting and I don't think its going to be of any significance but of course I had to take a few pics....myrosiedog I thought of you setting your alarm to get up and see the snow you were supposed to have and never got.....

    Well I didn't think about that gabriel...My first thought was God was trying to show me the beauty that can be when other things seem so dark....I like both of our ideas!
