Silver Jewellery is really durable and doesn’t tarnish quickly, but sometimes it needs to be cleaned. Of course, you can have your pieces of jewellery cleaned at most jewellery stores, but you can also do it easily and fast by yourself. Here are some tips for you to try at home.
There are a lot of products for cleaning silver jewellery on the market. If you feel like spending on quality products, you should buy a silver polishing cloth. You can get it in most jewellery stores or purchase it online and you can find decent cloths for under £2. They are designed specifically for cleaning of silver jewellery – they are treated with different anti-tarnishing agents that will make the cleaning process easier and reduce the need to polish frequently.
There are also various cleaning liquids and materials to help you with the task. However, you can do this with any ordinary cloth and water or other cleaning liquid. Have in mind that if your piece of jewellery has precious stones or other decorations on it, you should treat it carefully in order not to damage them.
If you own a lot of silver jewellery and need a faster and easier way to clean it, you can get an ultra-sonic tank, which uses the process cavitation to clean your jewellery. You simply place the silver pieces in with some hot water and/or cleaning liquid and the machine uses ultra-sonic sound waves to create tiny little bubbles that bombard your items and cleans them. Make sure not to leave your silver jewellery in the tank for more than the recommended time.
In a nutshell, it is really easy to clean silver jewellery at home. You can use a cloth and some liquid or an ultra-sonic tank and your items will be like new. In order to slow down the process of tarnishing, however, you should store your silver in colder places and take it off before swimming, as it reacts with Chlorine. The rest is clear – wear your jewellery and enjoy it!
