Care for your Jewelry

Even though Sterling Silver is beautiful, to maintain its luster it will need to be cleaned. Here are easy instructions for cleaning tarnish. Consider it a home science project.

Cleaning Sterling Silver

Line the bottom of a pan with aluminum foil. Set the silver object on top of the aluminum foil. Make sure the silver touches the aluminum.

Heat 4 cups of water to boiling. To the hot water, add about 1/4 cup of baking soda. Be careful, the mixture will froth a bit and may spill over.

Pour the hot baking soda and water mixture into the pan, and completely cover the silver.

Almost immediately, the tarnish will begin to disappear. If the silver is only lightly tarnished, all of the tarnish will disappear within several minutes. If the silver is badly tarnished, you may need to reheat the baking soda and water mixture, and give the silver several treatments to remove all of the tarnish.

Good Luck...
