Cleaning tarnish off silver plated lures.

Recommended Posts

Decided to try a technique I saw online for cleaning silverware on NK's. Consists of putting aluminum foil in a glass bowl with baking soda, salt and water. The results were amazing. Looks better than new. The 28 in the picture was a mess to start. I let it stand overnite. You can find that technique online. Keep in mind the NK body must have good contact with the foil.

What about if they are painted too? Does it strip the paint?

I have a old Kawasaki motor cycle sitting my shop w chrome wheels, fenders etc that had some rust. My neighbor tells me coke and aluminum foil, fold over foil 3-4 times dip it in the coke (drinking kind) and amazingly easy all the rust comes off with out any scratches to the crime.

Did not try any painted ones. It did not remove any tape on those types. I would say it probably would not degrade the paint.

I have used a brass case tumbler with walnut shell media.
I would guess at least 80% came out looking new after 2 hours in the tumbler.

I believe if you add peroxide to the concoction, they clean up in ten minutes. Tarnish slides over to aluminum
