The problem: If you have pieces of silver, brass or copper in your home — whether it’s cookware, doorknobs, or serving platters — those pieces are prone to tarnishing over time. This can be frustrating, especially when you pull out a piece you haven’t used in a while only to find its finish dull and dirty. However, we’ve got a bit of good news for you. If you’ve got a tarnish problem, there is one simple solution. You’re dying to know, right?
The Solution: The best thing about this tarnish obliterating solution is that there is only one ingredient. The second best thing is that you probably already have some in your pantry or refrigerator. No running to the store, no mixing ingredients for a DIY tarnish remover, and no fumes to deal with. What is it?
You read it right…plain old tomato ketchup. It’s safe, cheap, and it works great for tarnished silver, brass or copper.
