2. two pieces tin foil
3. scrunch up loosely and put into a bucket/plastic bowl
4. add about 2 tablespoons salt
5. place silver on the foil touching the surface as much as possible
6. add boiling water - add another kettle- full to cover the silver
7. leave for 2-5 mins then lift our carefully with tongs
8. rinse and polish with a soft cloth
Et voila! No nasty chemical polishes on utensils intended to be in contact with food - no nasty blackened fingers or residual smell of polish.
