I understand your concerns but how do you recommend removing
tarnish from silver that has a highly textured surface? I
understand using polish compounds like Goddards on smooth or low
relief surfaces but on bead blasted or other highly textured
surfaces any polishing methods I am aware of will destroy the
If you start to see very light tarnish that can sometimes only be
detected when the object is viewed against a white piece of paper, a
liquid, non-abrasive, unscented, aloe-free hand sanitizer, such as
Purell, may remove the tarnish. Use a large cotton ball and rotate
it regularly to expose unused surfaces, as elements in the tarnish
itself can be very abrasive; then dry the piece with a Selvyt cloth
or cotton dish towel. Try this technique first, as it is the least
abrasive of all silver cleaning methods.
I was truly amazed when I discovered this non-abrasive technique!
