sterling and silver plate cleaning: Sprinkle half to one cup baking soda over silverware you have placed in an aluminum pan. Keep the pan in the sink. Pour over enough boiling water to cover the utensils. When the tarnish disappears, remove the silverware and buff with a soft cotton cloth. (info relayed from a friend to me)
