Prevent Silver Tarnish and/or cleaning your Sterling Silver
Prevent Sterling Tarnish - Sterling silver will tarnish as it is exposed to air (even while sitting in your jewellery box). Storing your jewellery in small plastic zip bags will help slow oxidation. If you prefer to keep your jewellery bright and shiny tarnish prevention is key. Follow easy and natural cleaning method for sterling silver is as follows:
Clean Sterling Silver - For light tarnish, a jewellery polishing cloth can be used. For heavier tarnish, line a heatproof bowl with aluminum foil. Add two tablespoons of baking soda and about a cup of boiling water. Carefully submerge the sterling silver and stir. Let sit until bright. Rinse with cool water and dry with a soft cloth.
If there are gemstones in your sterling silver piece use baking soda or toothpaste directly on the silver taking care not to touch the gemstones/pearls.
