Combine all ingredients into the pan or dish with foil. Mix until salt and soda dissolve.

Place silver jewelry into pan/dish. Wait 2 to 3 minutes.

Rinse the jewelry thoroughly in water.

Dry the jewelry thoroughly with a soft cloth. Do NOT dry the jewelry with any paper product as this will scratch the silver.

Note: If cleaning jewlery not purchased from Sherry Cordova, beware that pearls, opals, or other items that have been glued into the jewelry may loosen in the hot water. If your jewelry contains glass or other heat sensitive objects, be careful to avoid temperature shock with a sudden pour of hot water. The cleaning process is not recommended for any jewelry that has glued components. Cleaning in this manner will remove all patina off the silver.
