Use Ketchup As a Last Resort to Clean and Polish Your Silver Jewelry

If your silver jewelry is starting to look a little ugly, treat it like a cheap hot dog and start smearing it with ketchup. It can help you make this necklace look like new.

As the PureWow tips site demonstrates in the video above, ketchup does a pretty good job of removing tarnished deposits on your silver jewelry. The acid in ketchup reacts with the silver sulfide that forms on the surface of your silver items.

Of course, when you are dealing with grandma’s relics, you may understandably hesitate to sprinkle it all with seasonings. As the Daily Mail points out , the acid in the ketchup is what triggers this reaction, and it’s not a very efficient delivery method. You can accomplish a similar task with aluminum foil and a little vinegar, or even just buy a cheap stain remover . However, if you are in a hurry and need to urgently buy this piece of jewelry for MacGyver, ketchup may be of little help. Just don’t expect a complete miracle. After it has absorbed a little, get ready to peel off a little.
