Trying to be more regular about polishing my silver. Silver is almost all I wear every day, and it seems to like to tarnish around me. I, however, am notoriously lazy about cleaning it. In my younger, more wasteful days I remember throwing out jewelry rather than cleaning it.
I have a great silver polish recipe that I use now:
Fill a bowl with:
-1-2 Tblsp cream of tartar (buy bulk cheap at Seward Coop or The Wedge)
-1-2 strips of aluminum foil
Throw in silver for about an hour. Rinse and dry with soft cloth. Leave in longer if really tarnished.
Or just rub your silver with a little toothpaste and peppermint essential oil.
Just do it regularly or it gets harder to clean!!!
