PRODUCT CARE - STERLING SILVER:
Sterling silver will tarnish and the speed at which it does depends on product care, chemicals it comes in contact with, your body and the environment it's stored. Never keep it in high humidity places such as bathrooms!

1. The best way to prevent tarnishing is to store clean, dry sterling silver in a dry airtight container, like a ziplock bag.
2. Don’t leave silver jewelry in the bathroom. Humidity can speed up the oxidation process that produces tarnish.
3. Minimize sterling silver’s contact to chemicals (hairspray, perfume, body lotion, bleach, etc.) and do not wear it the shower, swimming pool or hot tub.

Cleaning Tarnished Sterling Silver:

1. I use SUNSHINE POLISHING CLOTHS to remove tarnish from silver jewelry and highly recommend these. You can find them on Ebay and they do not cost much! I have used many products and other cloths and these work wonders on sterling silver. Cloths are easy, quick and work great!

2. If using a commercial liquid cleaner always remember to read the instructions on the first before you attempt cleaning. Most commercial cleaners are very strong and will remove all oxidation from pieces with patina. Many of the designs are purposely oxidized (darker accented areas) then polished, so that crevices are darkened to bring out the depth and beauty of a piece. Take care not to remove this design element. Do not go overboard!

3. BAKING SODA: Baking soda has worked for decades to clean sterling silver. Put foil in the bottom of a bowl. Put the silver piece on the foil and add generous baking soda on top of it. Then pour boiling water and more baking soda. Turn it over several times. Buff the item with a soft cloth, rinse and then wipe again with a soft cloth. Repeat the process if the patina is thick.

4. SOAP & WATER: Oils from your hands leave silver looking dull. A quick rinse with liquid soap and water really shines it up. Even if yours are not tarnished yet this will bring back a lot of shine.
