Need a couple of quick tips to keep sterling silver from tarnishing? Here are 4 things you can do:
1. keep in an airtight bag - a Ziplock works great for this
2. don't store your jewelry in the bathroom (the moisture can cause tarnish)
3. store your jewelry in "tarnish" cloth, available at your local fabric shop (you might have to ask for it); you can just wrap the cloth around your jewelry - it's doesn't have to be in a bag
4. include a small desiccant pack with your jewelry - the little packs that come with a new pair of shoes or a new purse
That's it! Enjoy your sterling silver jewelry, tarnish-free!
