It is recommended that if items are not being worn that they are kept in a sealed plastic bag as exposure to air quickens the tarnishing of silver. Items that are worn regularly should not tarnish quickly. You may wash items in warm water with a little washing up liquid and dry with a kitchen towel. Be sure to air dry for a few hours before returning to the plastic bag.
What is the best way to store silver jewellery? In an airtight re-sealable plastic bag when completely dry. Half seal the bag then squeeze the remaining air out before sealing to remove as much air as possible.
