There are a few things that must be mentioned before attempting to clean your silver yourself. The first is that silver is a soft and malleable metal, easily scratched, so do not use any harsh abrasive cleansers or other materials. The second thing to remember is that you will have to clean your silver repeatedly. Wiping down silver jewelry and silverware takes care of basic cleaning, but on average it is a good idea to clean and polish items every month or so, in order to remove the tarnish that always seems to accumulate.
The following methods will work on removing that tarnish buildup. These options are easily found in the house, quite often in your kitchen or bathroom cabinet.
