I've been using aluminium foil and table salt to clean my silverware for a long time without actually concerning myself with the chemistry behind it. A couple of days ago i started digging into the chemistry and found this page on wikipedia

Reactivity series

and when I looked closer i saw that both silver and tin where less reactive than aluminium. Does that mean that I can safely use the same technique with my tinware as with my silverware?
