How to Clean Silver Rings

Your silver rings needs to be cleaned properly every now and then, wiping them down with a cloth is fine but every now and then you need to put in some elbow grease and really polish those special pieces.

1.Place polish on a cloth, you only need a small amount of polish. You can also use a damp cloth.
2.Rub the polish up and down. Do not rub in a circular motion as this might highlight any scratches on the silver rings.
3.Make sure you turn the cloth around as you go to avoid tarnish building up.
4.Once you have rubbed the rings enough, rinse with warm water and dry off properly with a dry cloth.


Baking soda and aluminum foil. This is one the best methods to use at home to clean your silver rings. All you need to do is line a bowl with aluminum foil, pour some boiling water in and add baking soda (Use 1 tablespoon of baking soda for a cup of water). Add in your silver rings and leave for up to 3 minutes. Remove the rings, carefully as they may be hot. Dry them with a soft cloth.

Lemon and salt. This method is pretty effective as well and will have your silver rings looking like new in no time. Full a bowl with the juice of a lemon, 3 tablespoons of salt and hot water. Add the rings into the water and leave for up to 5 minutes. Remove carefully as they may be hot. Dry the jewellery with a soft cloth.

Toothpaste.This might sound very odd and it is a little, but it can be effective in cleaning your silver rings if you have nothing else available. Simply take a small about toothpaste and use a sponge or a toothbrush to rub it into the silver. Once you are done, rinse the jewellery in warm water.

Ketchup.This sounds even stranger than toothpaste, but the results will speak for themselves. Put some ketchup onto a toothbrush and use a toothbrush to clean the silver rings. Once you are done, rinse off with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.

Beer.Believe it or not this is a very effective method of cleaning silver jewellery. Soak your silver pieces of jewellery in a cup of beer for 5-10 minutes. Remove and rinse the rings, once you have rinsed then dry and buff with a soft cloth.
