Ditch the Dull

Horse & Rider - - Your Horse, Your Life -

Did you know that you can take grimy or tar­nished sil­ver pieces from blah to bling us­ing ev­ery­day house­hold items and a lit­tle bit of el­bow grease? Try one of these quick fixes. Tooth­paste. Squeeze a small amount onto a rag, pol­ish, and rinse. Corn starch. Add wa­ter to cre­ate a paste, ap­ply, let dry, and rub off with a rough cloth. Hand san­i­tizer. Squirt onto a soft cloth, and rub away tar­nish. Foil, salt, bak­ing soda. Line a bowl or your sink with foil; add hot wa­ter, a half cup of kosher salt, and half cup of bak­ing soda; stir mix­ture; add sil­ver piece and let soak; re­move af­ter sev­eral min­utes; rinse; and pol­ish with a clean, soft towel.

Use ev­ery­day house­hold items to spiff up the sil­ver pieces on your tack.
