Tip to care for Silver Jewellery

As you may have noticed, SIlver does tarnish.
Therefore, keeping your jewellery out exposed to air or light make your jewellery turn to grey and black

There are a few easy and 100% bio methods you may use to clean up your precious jewels and get rid of the oxydes
Here is one easy DIY technic : by Hydrolyse

Boild some water in your kettle or a pan, let it cool a bit, as to become hot, but not boiling hot. Take a pyrex glass dish or a bowl and line it with aluminium foil.
We all have some in our kitchen.

(Just do not use that bit of foil to wrap your favorite food - macarons - afterwards)

Add some salt, and the hot water.

All you need to do now is to dip your jewellery into this bowl.
When being into contact with the foil, a hydrolyse occurs, which has for effect to clean your jewellery up.
Just take your silver out , rinse and dry it with a soft cloth.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes .
You can even clean up your silver cutlery with this same method.
