to do. So, if you just bought some great looking silver biker jewelry and you

Things you need to know about sterling silver
Before we get into to how to clean your sterling

care of it. Silver is quite a soft metal and it can tarnish quite easily, so
here are a few tips that will help you keep your silver jewelry in perfect
Wearing your jewelry will help keep it clean
Hiding your jewelry away in a jewelry box won’t
stop it oxidizing so you are better off wearing your jewelry regularly. When
you wear things like sterling silver biker rings, the natural oils in your skin
act as a polish that helps to keep the silver clean.
Avoid contact with chemicals
Household chemicals and anything that contains
sulphur will tarnish silver, so avoid letting your silver biker jewel coming
into contact with things like detergents, chlorinated water, or foods like
onions, mustard and eggs.
Avoid contact with cosmetics
Another thing that will quickly tarnish silver is
cosmetic products, so take your jewelry off before you use any makeup,
hairspray, perfumes, or moisturizers.
Store silver jewelry separately
If you are going to store silver jewelry for any
length of time, store it in a sealed airtight container, because exposure to

pieces of jewelry, because silver jewelry can get scratched easily when it rubs
against other harder metals.
How to clean sterling
silver biker jewelry
There are a number of things that you can use to
clean silver jewelry, including commercial silver jewelry polish, dips, and polishing
cloths. You will also find that some people recommend using homemade silver cleaners,
such as baking soda and lemon juice, but we do not recommend that you use any
of these homemade cleaning techniques, because they can make silver jewelry lose
its shine and become dull.
Because biker biker style jewelry often has
intricate designs and tarnishing is sometimes used deliberately on some parts
of the jewelry to highlight the design, you won’t want to over polish it or
soak the jewelry in a dip, so we recommend that you use a Jewelry Polishing
Cloth, such as Silver Blue polishing cloths.
SilverBlue polishing cloths
SilverBlue polishing cloths are soft cleaning
cloths that have been impregnated with a cleaning agent that will lift
tarnishing and stains straight from the face of silver jewelry. The cloths can
also be used effectively on gold and platinum jewelry as well.
For general cleaning, you can use SilverBlue
polishing cloths alone to clean silver biker jewelry, but if the jewelry has
become very tarnished, you might need to use SilverBlue polishing cream first
to remove the heavy tarnishing.
SilverBlue polishing cloths are very easy to use
and they very quickly remove stains and tarnishing. The cloths are designed to
be used dry, and you shouldn’t wash them, or you will wash out the cleaning
The great thing about SilverBlue cleaning cloths is
they do two jobs in one. They do a great job of cleaning silver jewelry and
they also help prevent any further tarnishing of the jewelry as well.
To polish a piece of silver biker jewelry with a
polishing cloth, rub the cloth gently across the jewelry in a back and forth
motion. Avoid scrubbing or using a circular motion, as this could scratch the
silver and it will remove any deliberate tarnishing on the jewelry. When you
have finished polishing, rinse the jewelry under cool water and then dry it
with a dry cloth, but don’t wash the cloth.
As with any cleaning materials, when you have
finished using a silver cleaning cloth you should wash your hands thoroughly,
especially if you going to be eating or preparing food shortly after using it.
The polishing cloths should be stored in an airtight bag.
By far the best way to keep your sterling silver
biker Jewelry looking clean and as good as new is to polish it regularly with a
Silver Blue polishing cloth and avoid letting the jewelry come into contact
with any chemicals. That way, you won’t scratch the jewelry and you won’t risk removing
the deliberate tarnishing that might have been used to highlight the patterns
in the design of the jewelry.
