What is the effect of a hand sanitizer coming into contact with
sterling jewelry? Could our esteemed elders with chemical
backgrounds please comment.
It will assist in killing bacteria on the jewelry, just as it does
on one’s hands…
It won’t affect the silver. If the sanitizer contains moisturizers
(about the same as hand lotion), it might leave a residue on the
item. But other than leaving a residue, it wouldn’t affect the metal.
