Recipe Notes

  1. You can take any vessel, be it steel or any other but aluminium is preferred. You can use your aluminium pressure cooker for this purpose. Do not use plastic buckets, please.
  2. For pointed and narrow parts you may have to use a toothbrush. Please use a new toothbrush if using for pooja items.
  3. Ensure that the items are fully immersed in water. In case, it is not possible then invert it in the same water after few minutes, meaning that dip the uncleaned portion and the cleaned portion will be on top now.
  4. Take small pieces of aluminium foil, say about 2" by 2"  or 3" by 3"approximately.
  5. You may even wrap your silver items in the aluminium foil and then proceed with the above procedure.
