SILVER JEWERLY (925)

At the outset, it is worth noting that silver jewelry is a precious metal, extremely delicate and soft, so it is worth taking it off during all household chores, thanks to which you can easily prevent any mechanical damage (dents or scratches) and chemical damage (solder cracks under the influence of chemicals).

1. Clean water at room temperature, washing-up liquid and a soft toothbrush. By using a small amount of dishwashing liquid and a soft brush, you can wash off your jewelry from creams, greasy deposits, and sweat that have accumulated in small crevices and forms during use.

2. Vinegar, baking soda, lemon, and a soft cloth. Mix a small amount of vinegar with baking soda or lemon juice, soak a soft cloth in it and gently wipe the jewelry carefully cleaning every nook and cranny.

3. Toothpaste with whitening ingredients and a soft-bristled brush. Apply a small amount of toothpaste on the brush and brush your jewelry with circular motions, avoiding rhinestones and gemstones. Rinse the jewelry with lukewarm water.

4. Sour milk. Immerse the silver jewelry in a bowl of sour milk for about 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry the jewelry. This method works well when jewelry becomes black or discolored.

5. A mixture of salt and baking soda in hot water. The perfect mixture for cleaning smooth surfaces of silver jewelry, all kinds of chains and bracelets.

6. Turpentine and a soft cotton cloth. Apply a few drops of unscented turpentine to the cloth and polish the jewelry until the perfect shine. When finished, rinse the turpentine layer with water and dry the jewelry thoroughly.

7. Lemon juice. Squeeze the lemon juice and, thanks to a soft cloth, rub and polish the jewelry with the liquid. The acid removes the dark coating from silver jewelry.

REMEMBER

Silver jewelry rarely worn is subject to oxidation processes, therefore discoloration or black spots appear on it over time. By preventing such situations, you can make sure that it is stored in an appropriate manner. Wrapped in a soft, cloth pouch or stored in plastic bags with a string clamp, you prevent oxidation by limiting air access to it. In this way, you reduce the risk of blackening and discoloration on jewelry.
