As I was polishing my silver the other day, I realized, baking soda has got to be one of the most useful items on the planet. I mean, really, what can you not do with baking soda? You bake with it, clean with it, deodorize with it, vacuum with it, clean out drains with it, brush your teeth with it, and polish with it. In my experience, it has been the best medium to use for a metal polish. I mix it with water so that it's a watery paste, then dip a soft cloth in it and polish my piece. Then rinse. That's it. It's fantastic for copper too!
