I have been chemically sensitive for years and have not been able to use my heirloom silver. Using commercial silver polish results in lung problems to the extent of chemically induced pneumonia.
Today I decided to experiment on my 15 inch silver sandwich tray. I used Thieves Household Cleaner, undiluted right out of the bottle. To my astonishment, the first layer of BLACK TARNISH, which had built up over about 15 years, came off with a paper towel wipe! Thrilled, I used more and a bit of elbow grease. MORE came off, even the black on the Rose and vine border!!
Inspired now, I grabbed the baking soda, used more Thieves Household Cleaner and let it sit. It had dried when I came back but more came off. So I tried more and wiped it damp, this time with a "soft scrubber" that I use for my glass stovetop. I'm sure if I had used an old toothbrush on the Rose and vine border, I could have gotten down to the bottom layer, but I like some of the black in the indentations.
Now, the tray was sparkling but it still has some fine "mottling". I don't know if that is patina or tarnish, so this time I made a paste of the Household Cleaner and baking soda. That is setting up now and drying.
Is this "as good" as commercial cleaners? I'm not sure, but it does NOT make me SICK. I have not cleaned the back of the tray yet. I'm going to photograph it for a "before and after" and send it to my upline for her website. If anyone else has a better idea, PLEASE POST IT. YOU have NO IDEA HOW HAPPY this makes me. Now, I think I can clean my mother's silver coffee and tea service!!!
Yes, I have tried the metal tray or aluminum foil or pot with baking soda. Works fine for silverware but not for big pieces. I am thrilled with Thieves Household Cleaner, use it on everything---my stainless steel appliances, (best undiluted for this) my marble countertops, my burned pans (best undiluted), my dishwasher (diluted--,makes the glassware sparkle! I also use it in my garbage disposal along with Orange peelings and eggshells to clean and disinfect--and I throw in some baking soda too!
I have used it recently after we powerwashed the chicken house. I sprayed the diluted substance on the scraped down roosts, walls and floors. The chickens had mites and were losing feathers, so I sprayed them too. The angry red flesh is now growing FEATHERS again. This is the BEST THING EVER. I have replaced almost all my cleaning products now except my laundry soap.
