But when it starts to look like this, I know what to do.

Here’s how I clean my silver:


I get my cotton balls out, put some Tarn-X on them, rub my silver until it shines.

Shiny and Clean and Easy, just like that.


  1. Adding Tarn-x to my list because the discoloration is what stops me from picking up pieces that I see at garage sales. You make it look easy to clean and easy I can handle.

  2. That must be a huge amount of work! I’ve tried silver polishes and wore out before the tarnish did. Tarnex is that great a product?! I am truly impressed. Now if hubs can remember where he “put it away:……:-)

  3. I love my Tarn-X too. It’s like total cheater polishing 😉 lol

  4. I need to clean my silver. I walked by some the other day and thought I need to get to cleaning those pieces. Ok now I really need to get to it so it looks all pretty again. I love the idea of hanging it on the wall as art. Hmm now you have me thinking.
