ISO Recipe for Silver polishing

Help! I used to have the recipe for polishing silver with tin foil, baking soda and something else and can't find it.

Anyone?

The recipe I have is for boiling water in an aluminum pan (or any pan lined with foil) and baking soda.

Okey dokey, off I go! Thanks Andy! I think I recall that I'm not supposed to do this in a stainless sink right? I'll do it in my rubbermaid tub. I'll post a pic when I'm done. Its my latest "treasure"
