Best way to clean badly tarnished silver candlesticks

Using baking soda, boiling water and tinfoil is advocated on many of the searches I have made but it sounds rather harsh! Have any forum members tried this rather drastic approach or have you a better, safer way to restore these back to their original splendour?

Autosol works well on silver, as long as it's not silver plate, which will slowly wear through.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I probably will have a go at the baking soda, boiling water and tinfoil method in the not to distant future.

Get rid of the candle sticks and put the gas mantles back on again.

Just in case you forgot what they look like.
