With a very simple ingredient available at your local grocery store, hardware store or online. It's so easy, even a baby can do it. It's best to rinse or dip the piece in warm water first.  The heat helps with the magic. You don't need much polishing creme on the sponge. Apply in a circular motion, just like handwashing, except you are removing tarnish, not food. For troublesome spots, a little more creme and a little concentrated effort will up your magic capabilities. Let me emphasize, RINSE THOROUGHLY and DRY THOROUGHLY!  Just pay a little bit of attention to what you are doing please.  You don't want to have to repeat yourself.  Leftover water or residue will leave spots. It's quick and easy and you see the shiny results immediately.  Everyone loves shiny things.
