How to revive tarnished silver (Pure or plated)


This tip is very useful for people who deal regularly with silver like coin collectors and Silver plated cuttlery owners. The thing is silver usually gets tarnished when it is in conatct with air for very long periods like years and decades. but this can be reversed pretty easily. Following are the items you will need.

1. tarnished silver
2. Gas burner (household gas stove will do)
3. Any tool or a plier to hold the siver item.
4. Mittens (optional)

Set the gas burner at a high flame and start heating the siver item, heat it until you see that the black areas are starting to turn into a whitish silver colour. Heat it until all areas turn silver colour. Thats pretty much it. Try not to heat the siver to the point where it turns red hot because it will cause it to melt also be extra careful with silver jewellery becuase it can be fragile. and other gems or stones etc may not respond well to this much heat.

Thanx for reading.
