Sterling silver and silver-plated metal should be washed by hand with a soft sponge and soapy water. After washing, they must be carefully dried with a clean, dry cloth.
To maintain components made of precious wood – handles, etc. – simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth.
Puiforcat proposes two easy-to-use solutions for regular upkeep:
A new renovating lotion, formulated for silver but also for vermeil and gold. In a single application, Puiforcat lotion eliminates the layer of oxidation that appears on the surface and provides long-lasting protection thanks to the antioxidants it contains. The decorations and chiseling are preserved thanks to the extreme finesse of its polishing agents.
A pack of two brown lotion-doused cotton dusters to eliminate oxidation on the surface of sterling silver or silver-plated pieces. This is the perfect product for regular care. To restore tarnished pieces to their original shine, simply buff them with a white chamois cloth.
As well, in some drugstore you can find some long-lasting lotion to clean, polish and lastingly protect your items.
