How do you clean antique sterling silver?


#1

What is the best method to clean and polish an antique sterling silver tea set? Also with which product?
Thank you!


#2

I suggest read Jeff Herman’s guide to silver polishes to which he gives a link in his post in this forum. Start with the least damaging and work up, avoiding completely the most abrasive products which he lists at the end of his guide.

Hello Silverangel,

My apologies for not replying sooner as I hadn’t been notified about posts until recently.

As Silvermakersmarks mentioned, my Silver Care Guild has all the answers you’ll need to care for your teaset.
