Question DetailsAsked on 5/5/2018

Can I use the easy tinfoil/baking soda cleaning recipe on my weighted silver candlesticks? Trying to make it easy!

I have many candlesticks and candelabras to clean. Sterling silver and silver plate. I’m really trying to make it as easy as possible, because I also have many other silver items to clean as well. I know I probably shouldn’t soak the weighted portion due to possible leakage and damage, but I feel like I can soak them one at a time, quickly enough and gently enough to avoid damage. Actually, I did find one website where an expert said that it was OK to place weighted candlesticks in the water as long as you are careful. I was thrilled to find that guy! However, after scouring the rest of the Internet it became painfully clear that he is the only human on earth that is even going to ADDRESS this issue! I couldn’t believe that this had not even been recognized by the BEST experts! Am I the only one that has ever thought of this? Gosh.. sorry to rant, and I hate to sound lazy but I want nothing more than to dump baking soda all over my family heirlooms! So... HELP! ...anybody?!
