Line 1: Line 1:
Sterling silver isn’t pure (pure silver is known as fine silver) but rather an alloy that contains about 10 percent of another metal, such as copper. Silver is actually a very soft metal, so it’s combined with other metals to make it stronger and more functional. Sterling silver is often used for cutlery, serving utensils, jewelry, accessories such as hair clips, and even business tools like letter openers. The silver that’s in sterling silver can tarnish when it comes into contact with certain environmental pollutants, and the alloy metals are often reactive with oxygen, making sterling silver prone to corrosion and tarnishing. But whether you need to clean your favorite watch, your grandmother’s soup ladle, or your fancy cutlery in preparation for a big dinner party, it is possible, and relatively simple, to clean and polish sterling silver objects.
