How to Store Silver
Silver sulfide or tarnish develops when silver comes in contact with sulfur present in the air and water. Residual moisture can result in further discolouration of silver. So to avoid tarnish from developing on silver before storing it you must:
· Clean your silver articles with a mild liquid detergent
· Wipe it dry completely with a lint-free or soft cotton cloth.
There are multiple ways in which you can store silver. Pick any of the following options and remember to wrap each item separately.
· Use a Tissue paper, butter paper or an acid-free paper to wrap the articles
· Muslin cloth or an old cotton rag is also another popular choice.
Remember to never store silver wrapped in a newspaper. The acids or ink from the newspaper can damage, pit and corrode silver.
Silver is a soft metal, so if a lot of articles are cramped together in a tight space, it can lead to scratches and dents. So store them in such a way that they don’t rub and damage each other. In places with high humidity, moisture in the air can lead to dark patches on your silver. To avoid this you can simply store all your silver articles in an airtight box.
Another quick hack that one can follow while storing silver is the use of chalk or silica gel bags. Chalk and silica are known to absorb moisture. If storing your silver articles in an airtight container is not an option, then wrap your article in a cling film and then place a few pieces of chalk wrapped in some cotton or a few tiny silica gel bags along with it. This will help absorb excess moisture build-up, hence protecting your silver against tarnishing.
