Find a liquid tarnish remover.
For the most professional result, we recommend buying a liquid tarnish remover rather than a scrub or polish, as a liquid tarnish remover can more easily remove stains from your jewelry. Unlike silver cutlery, jewelry usually has very uneven surfaces with small details, corners, and holes that may be impossible to clean using a scrub or a polish. The liquid tarnish remover will easily cover every area of your jewelry and do the work for you.
Prepare your jewelry to be cleaned with a liquid tarnish remover.
If possible, remove any loose non-silver parts from the jewelry. For instance, when cleaning our Northern Lights necklaces, remove the glass pendant from the chain and frame before continuing. Rinse your silver jewelry in luke warm water with dish soap in order to remove any dirt that may prevent the tarnish remover to clean the entire jewelry. Dry the jewelry before continuing the process.
Dip your jewelry in your liquid tarnish remover.
Follow the instructions to your liquid tarnish remover carefully.
If your tarnish remover comes with a small basket, place your jewelry in the basket and dip the entire basket in the liquid so it fully covers the jewelry.
If no basket is provided, you can wear rubber gloves and use your hands to dip the jewelry in the liquid tarnish remover.
Be careful not to leave the jewelry in the liquid tarnish remover too long, as the chemicals may start to hurt the silver. We usually let the jewelry stay in the liquid for between 10 – 30 seconds maximum. It’s better to do several shorter dips than one long dip!
Rinse the jewelry well in clean, running water.
Check the Jewelry
If the jewelry is still tarnished, repeat the process from Step 3.
If not, continue on to Step 6.
Dry the jewelry completely.
For the perfect result, use a dry soft cloth and gently polish your jewelry. Viola! Your old-looking discolored jewelry is transformed back into its original pristine condition, just like a pro!
