Look ma, no chemicals: Silver Cleaning

Wacky home cleaning method here. I love trying to find a way to clean with minimal chemicals. This I had to share: cleaning silver. 

I had these candlestick and truth be known, they are silver over brass, but I love them. 

Boil water with a tablespoon of baking soda. Take off the heat, and this is the wierd part, add a sheet of aluminum foil and the silver. Soak for 20 minutes or so.
