Anybody tried chemically cleaning Plated Silver?

I have a very old plated silver baby cup that I would like to clean. I have read about using very mild abrasive such as silver polish and I have read about doing it chemically using a dish lined with aluminum foil and then adding salt and baking soda to steaming water in the dish. Has anyone tried this? Did it work? The directions I see say the item has to be touching the foil. Do you know if that means just at one point or will it only clean where it is touching. Any help is great.

From what I saw on You tube it seems to work.

Just do a internet search and there will be many vids and showing the results........
