Maintaining your silverware

Whether you got it for yourself, it was a gift, or it is a family heirloom, if you have valuable pieces of silver, you want to try your best to keep them looking shiny and brand new. Tarnish starts off with a yellowish tint and the more time passes, the darker it gets until it is a purple or black. Don’t ever let your silver get that bad because to have that repaired requires a professional, a lot of time, and a lot of money. If you are starting to notice a bit of tarnish on your silverware, here is a step-by-step process on how to carefully remove it:

  1. Rinse each silver item in hot water to remove any surface dust.
  1. While the silver is still warm, use a moistened foam sponge to spread the silver polish one at a time to each piece of silver.
  2. Spread the cream quickly over the silver piece to cover it completely.
  3. Gently rub each tarnished area. Move all around the piece until the tarnish is gone.
  4. Wash with mild dish soap and rinse in warm water.
  5. Dry each piece with a very soft cotton towel to remove all of the water.

Remember, silver is a soft metal so be careful when rubbing the polish on your pieces.
