How to clean sterling silver jewellery

In this blog post we will show you how to clean your sterling silver jewellery in a simple and effective way.

Sterling silver jewellery is beautiful and elegant, but requires special care and cleaning to maintain its shine.
This is because sterling silver is susceptible to oxidation, which means that the jewellery can tarnish and darken over time. This happens because of the reaction of the silver with air and moisture. To avoid this, you should clean your sterling silver jewellery regularly.

Here is one way to clean your tarnished sterling silver jewellery:

  1. Fill a bowl with hot water. The water should be hot enough to dissolve the baking powder.
  2. Place a layer of aluminium foil in the bowl and add half a cup of baking powder.
  3. Stir the baking powder with a spoon until it is completely dissolved.
  4. Now carefully place your sterling silver jewellery in the bowl so that it is completely covered with the solution.
  5. Leave the jewellery to soak in the solution for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, the aluminium foil will form a chemical reaction with the baking soda and silver, removing the oxidation.
  6. Take the jewellery out of the solution and rinse it thoroughly with water to remove any residue from the baking soda.
  7. Dry the jewellery with a soft cloth and polish it with a cloth if necessary.
  8. Repeat this process as needed until your jewellery is completely clean.

It is important that you handle the jewellery carefully to avoid scratches. If necessary, use a soft toothbrush to clean hard-to-reach areas. If you clean your sterling silver jewellery regularly in this way, it will retain its special shine.

Other ways to clean your sterling silver jewellery and restore its beauty:

Use a mild detergent

You can clean your sterling silver jewellery with a mild detergent. Fill a bowl with warm water and add a mild detergent, such as washing up liquid or soap. Dip your jewellery in the solution and gently rub it with a soft cloth. Avoid using coarse brushes or abrasive cleaners as they can scratch the silver.

Use a silver polish

Another way to clean your sterling silver jewellery is to use a silver polish. A silver polish is a special cleaning agent designed specifically for cleaning silver. Apply the silver polish to a soft cloth and gently rub the jewellery with it. Make sure to clean all the corners and edges of the jewellery. Then rinse the jewellery thoroughly with water and dry it with a soft cloth.

Use a citric acid solution

Sterling silver jewellery can also be cleaned by using a citric acid solution. Mix half a cup of citric acid with one cup of water. Place your jewellery in the solution and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Rinse the jewellery thoroughly with water and dry it with a soft cloth.
