In the clip, which has been viewed more than 20.000 times, the TikTok user shares that a simple concoction of boiling water, baking soda, salt, and aluminium foil is all you need to revive your tarnished bracelets.

Lining a bowl with aluminium foil, or tinfoil, she then pours in three cups of boiling water before mixing  in one tablespoon of salt and one tablespoon of baking soda.

And then, she drops her Pandora charm bracelet into the bowl and leaves it to soak for a few minutes.

After about 10 minutes, she removed the bracelet from the bowl and suggests using a cloth or toothbrush to remove any excess dirt from the silver.

Needless to say, other TikTok users were absolutely loving this hack.

“Thank you so much for this. I haven’t worn mine because of the colour change and expired warranty as well,” one person commented.

Another one said:

“Thank you I had a Pandora ring tarnish cause I used it when applying hair removal cream. Going to try this x”

A third TikTok user stated:

“I am doing this now and after 2 mins I already can see it has made it pretty again.”
