I recently purchased a spray bottle of liquid jewellery cleaner that
works extremely well on sterling silver chain mail. There is no list
of ingredients. It says that it is good for a specified list of
stones, but not for pearls, opals or electroplated jewellery.
I have been searching for quite a while for a product for customers
who aren’t in the market for a tumbler, yet want shiny silver
chains. Polish cloths and cream cleaners don’t do the job.
The first bottle I purchased had the typical warnings about using
gloves, ventilation, eyes, skin etc., plus a warning that it
contains a chemical known to the state of CA to cause cancer.
Then I purchased several bottles to sell, and these bottles now have
a warning not to use it on Argentium sterling. I called the company,
and they say they added that warning because of customer feedback –
that the cleaner would somehow affect the surface anti-tarnish
properties of Argentium sterling.
I would dearly love to have some authoritative feedback about this!!
I will pass on what I learn to the company selling the product
