I have to share this tip he recently posted on his Facebook page.
He says that to clean your silver in seconds, line a sink with heavy duty aluminum foil, and then bring a few big pots of water to almost boiling. Place the silver on the foil and pour water over it, then pour in some baking soda - use at least a box if you have more than a few items. It causes a chemical reaction that will leave your silver shiny in seconds.
For the reaction to work, the silver has to be touching the foil, so you will have to turn it. August adds that if you’re doing a large amount of silver you will need to change the foil, water and baking soda every so often for best results.
Afterward, wash your pieces with soapy water, rinse, dry and enjoy the sparkle.
