Removal of Tarnish on Silver - Another Way
We talked about preventing tarnish on sterling silver by keeping it in a ziplock bag, away from damp conditions (so, storing your silver jewelry in your bathroom is not a great idea), and using a desiccant pack. Go here if you would like to see the details!
Here is an idea for removing tarnish as it builds up, especially when you want to preserve the beautiful patina that builds up over time on silver.
Try this: use a little bit of baking soda and water to make a wet paste. Using a soft toothbrush, dip it in the paste and scrub your sterling silver piece gently. Voila! Tarnish gone.
More ideas to come! Meanwhile, enjoy your sterling silver jewelry!
