How to Clean Silver Bullion Bars

Being in need to increase the amount of fiat US dollars in my checking account, I had to dig a few 100 oz RCM Silver Bars from my stash to sell silver bullion to SD Bullion.

These 100 oz silver bars I just sold were stored in a dry place, uncovered and therefore had oxidized or tarnished a bit over the years as they were exposed to open air.

Rather than send in some tarnished silver bullion bars, I decided to do a quick clean of the silver bars I was selling. This DIY silver cleaning process took 10 minutes of my time; executed with some hot water, tin foil, and some baking soda.

In the image above you can see the before and after results.

The following video will give you an even more detailed explanation on how to clean silver bullion bars, rounds, and coins that are not of highly rare or numismatic collection quality.

Knowing this quick, easy silver bullion cleaning process can help you yield more interest and possibly higher bid prices from the better presentation perceptions that shinier bullion gives in general.
