Be it your silver flatware or any jewelry, rubbing it hard with a brush is not a right way to bring its misplaced shine back. What you should do is boil the water till it gets lukewarm. After boiling, line the glass dish from the layer of aluminum foil with its silver side up. Now place all your pieces of jewelry and flatware’s in an aluminum covered dish. Make sure that each piece is touching the foil. After 30-40 seconds of soaking, you can take them all out with a tong and admire their glorious beauty. You can also add vinegar to speed up the process.
