Dear ATLA, What's the best way to clean silver? -Gloria Hey Gloria - we are sure we will get crucified for this, but we love our Hagerty Silver Dip. Because of the funnel container you literally put a few pieces of silver into the included dipping basket and dunk away the tarnish in just seconds. We also recommend a good pair of Silversmith's gloves so you can clean and buff larger silver pieces like candle sticks without traces of fingerprints. Of course there is also the old school Home-made way of boiling water, baking soda and salt. Good luck!
