Silver in its raw form is too soft to be used in different items such as jewelry, flatware and others. Usually, the jewelry and others contain 92.5% silver content and copper and zinc as its remaining percentage to assure its durability. Though, there is no denying the fact that sterling silver is subject to discolouration and corrosion. So, one has to take care of his silver chains and other ornaments.

If you’ve not found a way to keep the shine and polish of silver intact, then here’re a few ways to help you out:

Use a Mild Detergent:

  • Fill up a bowl with lukewarm water. You’re not needed to fill it till the top.
  • Mix a mild detergent into the bowl. Put a small quantity of the detergent. Take a spoon to stir it well with the water.
  • Put the silver ornaments into the bowl. To get rid of grit and dirt, bush them off with a soft toothbrush or a sponge. Often, prolonged exposure to water leaves water stains on the surface of the metal. Thus, do not keep the silver chains immersed in water for a longer time.
  • Experts at 925 Silver Jaipur holding immense experience in dealing with jewelry, suggest to wash off the detergent under running water. Or you can also pour clean water in another container to rinse off the soap.
  • In order to dry it out, gently rub it off with a dry microfiber towel or a piece of cloth.
  • Using thick fabricated material may cause visible damages to the silver. Therefore, take a small microfiber cloth to weep out any visible tarnishing.

Use Aluminium Foil, Baking Soda And Vinegar:

This method of polish consists of some anti-tarnishing ingredients such as baking soda, salt and vinegar.

How to Get Started?

  • Pour water into a bowl and allow it to boil for sometime. Only take water as much as required to soak the jewelry items.
  • Cover a heat safe container with a small piece of aluminium foil. Make sure to close the bowl’s mouth. In case, one sheet of foil is not enough, wrap it with more sheets.
  • Take equal proportions of baking soda and salt ( 1 teaspoon each) with half a cup of white vinegar. Do not haste, go slow. Pour each ingredient individually. For polishing two or more items together, you need to increase the quantity of every ingredient.
  • Mix them in a way that no chunks of salt or baking soda is left in the solution. Stir it well until it dissolves fully.
  • Flow the boiled water into the mix. But, not all at once.
  • Carefully put the silver item and leave them for 2 to 3 minutes. Later, put it on a polishing cloth. Let it dry out. Further, polish it using a cloth. Give special attention to the rusted places and clean them completely.
