With the increase in demand for clean energy across the globe, people started to look for an alternative source of energy such as the usage of solar energy. As a result, there is a rise in demand for solar panels to be manufactured. Clearly, these energy panels’ raw materials prices skyrocketed as well, one of them being silver.
Silver price has risen exponentially since 2000, with more than 400% increase. The current price for silver is $26.11 per ounce, when it was just $6.37 per ounce in 2001. Consequently, silver buyers have to take further consideration into how to take care of their precious metal. The arch enemy of silver unquestionably is sulfur, the factor that creates tarnish on your silver jewelry. This element exists in many forms, from being a gas in natural air to compounds like our sweat that secretes from our body. This is the reason why many silver retailers wear gloves when touching their product. The following are ways I want to introduce to you on how to protect your silver from being destroyed by sulfur.
1. Toothpaste & Warm Water
Put your silver into a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes
Follow by applying toothpaste onto the ornaments and use your finger to gently rub the tarnish off.
If that tarnish does not come off, try using a toothbrush instead of your finger to rub your silver.
2. Baking Soda
Things you need for this procedure-
1 Cup of Baking Soda
1 Cup of Salt
Cover your chosen container with the aluminum foil
Pour boiling water into the container
Add 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of salt into the water
Place the silver that has been tarnished into the solution
Allow the piece to soak in the solution for 30 minutes or more depending on the result.
Remove the item when cool and dry it with the soft cloth
3. I Am A Scientist
If you have an ultrasonic machine you should be professional at cleaning your silver. Nevertheless, if you happen to have the machine but do not know how to use it, start off by filling the machine container with clean water up to the specific level, according to the guidance of the machine brand. Turn on the machine and wait for the tarnish to magically disappear from the jewelry. Yes! It is that easy.
