How did I not know that?

Have you ever had that moment when you learn something new and you go, "how did I not know that?" It seems that since I moved out of my parents' house and got married I've had quite a few of those moments.

Today, I had another. I wanted to polish two silver trays and a simply buffing wouldn't quite cut it. I'm not a fan of using any harsh chemicals, so I thought I was up a creek's paddle. Then, a quick trip over to Google and I'm back in my kitchen and creating a baking soda and water paste. The results- like the magical glow and dramatization in any cleaning product infomercial. I even uttered, in my Rachel Zoe voice, "Amazing!"

Yeah, this polishing paste is fantastic, but doesn't quite rank up there with storing brown sugar in the refrigerator.

Any other tips I should know about??? Please feel free to share.


  1. Hah! I love it! I'm not sure if I have any to contribute though . . .

  2. that is so funny - I actually did a post on how I went through the very same silver polish process a while ago. I even did some tips on how to get those items super shiny without much elbow grease :) great minds.
