    Please help with a tip as to how to clean the silver pooja articles, sometimes they are very sharp which is why I am not able to clean it properly.

    They say it should be boiled with water adding a little cooking soda. But is it safe.

    You can use tooth paste or tooth powder or else just vibhuthi. Alternatively, you can also use sabina powder. Apply any of these these (without adding any water) directly on the silver item with the help of an unused toothbrush or a dry cloth and leave it for about 10 minutes and them wipe them. They sparkle like anything.

    Hi,

    To clean silver items you can use pitambari powder.It works very well for silver,brass,copper items.

    You can keep silver shiny in a closed area like in glass front cupboard if you keep a block of camphor in there with them. Yes, toothpaste is a good silver polish.

    The same company that makes Pitambari, has a product called Ruperi for silverware. It is quiet effective and easy i.e. no scrubbing.

    Apply Sabina powder on the silver articles/ idols and leave it for 3-4 minutes. Then using a new junior toothbrush clean the silver items and then wash thoroughly in clean water.
