No matter how well you care for your silverware, it will naturally tarnish over time. In fact, the better quality your silverware, the more likely it is to tarnish because real silver reacts with air and light exposure (that’s how you know you’re getting the real deal!)
Cleaning and maintaining your silver cutlery is a fairly simple process, once you know what to do. All that’s required are a few pantry items and a little bit of time side aside for the job.
For me, cleaning silver cutlery can be a wonderfully mindful experience to engage in.
It may sound a little contrived, but there’s something extremely rewarding about seeing blackened and tarnished cutlery restore with shine. There’s beauty and magic in maintaining and looking after our everyday things, and what better way to enjoy “new” silver cutlery without the price tag?
