Caring for Your Silver
How to Care for your Handmade Sterling Ware
Wash your silver immediately after use in hot, soapy water. Rinse with hot water, and dry thoroughly with a soft flannel or cotton cloth. For cleaning after rinsing, use a high-quality paste or cream silver polish with a soft cloth. Or you may want to dry pieces with a Silver Butler cloth, which has a cleaning agent built in.
How to Stay Ahead of Tarnish
Do not let your silver air dry, because water left standing can cause spotting.
Acidic foods and egg yolk will also tarnish silver.
They are dishwasher safe, but will tarnish faster.
If they are put in the dishwasher, do not put them next to anything stainless unless you like a more textured silver surface.
