{Organisation} How to Clean Stirling Silver Jewellery

7:00 am

Personally, I love me some Stirling Silver but, the air in the town I now live in is really sulphuric which plays havoc on stirling silver jewellery and leaves pieces tarnished if not stored correctly.

So, here's a super simple way to spruce up your favourite pieces with some easy, household items.

Keep reading to find out how...

You will need:
Your Stirling Silver Jewellery that you wish to clean
A Bowl
Boiling Water
Baking Soda
Tin Foil (Aluminium Foil)
Polishing Cloth / Jewellery Wipe

  • Into the bowl, place in your jewellery. If you have lots of pieces to clean, just do a few at a time to allow the water to mix in and between each piece
  • Sprinkle over 1 Tbsp of Baking Soda
  • And tear off several pieces of tin foil and throw those in as well
  • Fill with boiling water to just above the jewellery
  • Swirl around with a spoon or skewer making sure that each every piece of your jewellery comes in contact with the foil

How does it work?
The reaction of the baking soda and water activates the cleaning process and removal of tarnish while the tin foil is an attractant for the tarnish, drawing it away from your favourite stirling silver pieces
  • By now, you should see that most of the tarnish will have come off your jewellery
  • Remove the pieces from the bowl and buff with a soft cloth
  • If you already have jewellery wipes on hand, these are great and it's not defeating the purpose at all. As you will see, these pieces here of mine are a tennis style bracelet and necklace and by buffing with a jewellery cloth, I'm simply removing tarnish from the outer edges. This cleaning solution mix helps to remove any tarnish and grime from the inside of the links
  • Thoroughly dry your jewellery with your cloth and there you have it, shiny as new Stirling Silver Jewellery x
