How to Store and Clean Sterling Silver

Clean Your Silver Jewellery the "Green" Way!


To keep your sterling silver fresh and bright, try and keep it in a plastic baggie when it is not in use.  This is because oxygen likes to steal the shine in silver and a plastic bag prevents air flow.  

If you keep your silver out for a long time, it might start to look dull or lose it's lustre - Fear not!  This is normal.  

Try cleaning your silver by placing it in a glass dish lined with aluminum foil.  Pour a liberal amount of baking soda over the jewellery and then pour boiling hot water to cover everything.  Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, remove and rub with a cloth!  This works for crystals, pearls, CZ's and glass - even diamonds!

Simple and Eco-friendly too!
