Wash the tarnished items, then place on aluminum foil in the bottom of a pot (kettle). Combine 1/4 cup baking soda, 3 teaspoons salt (table salt is fine) and 1 quart of boiling water. Pour over tarnished items in the kettle and turn items if necessary to clean all surfaces. As soon as the tarnish is gone, remove and rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
I found this to be the best method I have ever used. This solution removed tarnish that sliver cleaner did not remove and it was done in seconds with not mess like a tooth brush and sliver cleaner produces. I used it on silver chamber stick bases and on jewelry and they looked like new when I was done.
