I accidentally left my sterling silver and some plated, in bleach to clean them. I forgot to get them out. After more than an hour, I went to get them and they are very tarnished. What do I need to do to restore them back to their beautiful state again?
There is a simple solution to clean your tarnished silverware. In a pot on your stove, add 1 liter of water, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a piece of aluminum foil to the pot. Bring to a boil and drop the silverware in the post. Let it stay in the post for 10 seconds, if your silverware is very tarnished leave it in the pot a little longer. Remove the silverware from the pot using a pair of tongs. If the silverware tarnish is extremely built-up you will need to make a paste out of baking soda. The paste is ¼ cup of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of water. Clean the silverware using the paste.
I'm so stupid. I have 4 rings all are sterling silver. I'm heartbroken. I put them in denture cleaner. I thought it would clean them good.
Try to clean your sterling silver jewerly with natural solutions like mild soap and warm water, that works for me along with a polishing cloth.
Thank you. Lesson learned. I'm gonna take these to a jewelry shop and see if they can fix them.
I would take them to a jeweler and have them clean and polish them.
Having your rings professionally cleaned sounds good but it could be costly with that many rings.
