Woman Swears By Dishwasher 'Tin Foil' Hack To Make Cutlery Sparkle

How does it work? Well, the tin foil experiences a chemical reaction with the ingredients in your dishwasher tablets.

This results in an oxidation process – the chemicals in the detergent interact with the metal in the foil to create an ‘ion exchange’.

It should be noted that this only really works on real silverware, and not stainless steel cutlery some people have – so try this on your best cutlery!
