The reaction with the chemicals in the environment and body oils causes sterling silver to naturally oxidised. However, it is very easy to keep your sterling silver bright, if you know how to use the correct care products.
Use just a polishing cloth, as gentle rubbing and buffing alone will remove mild tarnishing. Polishing cloths are ideal as they are usually impregnated with a polishing compound, last a long time and give an amazing shine.
Clean with soap and warm water and dry very well is another way to clean and remover the grease of the jewellery.
Avoid the contact with perfume, hairspray, salt water and cleaning products.
Should be careful when cleaning oxidized jewellery though, as too much scrubbing and you will scrub the effect off!
