Silver jewelry can easily develop stains, grime or scratches compared to other types of jewelry. It is quite intimidating to clean silver jewelry since they are very delicate. But you don't need to hire a professional for the job. In fact, you can do it at home with the following techniques. Here is how to clean silver jewelry at home.
1/ Pour two cups of hot water into a bowl. Stir a tablespoon of salt in the water until it fully dissolves. Tear a few strips from an aluminum foil and put them into this solution. This combination is effective in removing any tarnish on the silver surface. This solution will work great for most gemstones, but if your silver jewelry contains expensive gemstones, it is best that you seek professional assistance in cleaning silver jewelry.
2/ Submerge the jewelry in this solution and let it sit there for 5-minutes. Stir it a bit to see whether the tarnish is going away. Once you see the silver shine restored, remove the jewelry from the solution.
3/ Run the jewelry under cool running water in order to rinse off the salt. Gently dry the jewelry with a soft tissue.
