The Easiest Way to Polish Your Sterling Silver Jewelry

Silver jewelry is a kind of jewels that suit for different occasions. Their elegant looks make the wearer can use it whether as fine or casual jewelry. Silver metal that used to create jewelry items is rarely in the purest form. Most silver jewelry comes to you in sterling silver, an alloy of 92.5% pure that mixed with another metal normally copper to make it stronger. 

Sterling silver has lovely white shade and this metal can reflect light well. On the other hand, too much air exposure can tarnish any silver quickly. To maintain the shine and durability of your jewelry items, you should take required care. So, let me share here the practical way to polish silver and make it shines like new again. In this case, microfiber will help you a lot.  

There are some methods that you can apply to clean silver jewelry items but as mentioned before, I’ll share only the easiest cleaning way that just using water, mild detergent, and Microfiber Cleaning Cloths.

Fill up a small basin with warm water adequately to immerse the silver item. Then you put a small amount of mild dish detergent into the water; mix it with your hands. Add the silver jewelry items that you want to clean into the bowl. If needed, you can use a clean soft sponge to lightly remove the dirt. Don’t let silver in the soapy water too long; take it out of the bowl after a few minutes and rinse it in cool water.

Next step is drying and polishing. Waterless Microfiber Towels will help you to easier dry out the wet silver items thoroughly. After the jewelry looks clean already, you can even give a polish by using a small microfiber cloth. Avoid polishing with fabric which made from heavy fibers as it will only worsen your silver. Rubb off any noticeable stained spots with this microfiber and then you’ll get your shiny silver jewelry again. Improper cleaning and scrubbing can harm any surface. For small valuable pieces like jewelry that aren’t very dirty, microfiber cleaning cloths can be a great tool to bring back their shines!
