I don’t understand the whole search for “new” way’s of keeping
silver tarnisch free for storage.
There are anti tarnisching strips, bags, fabrics, dipping solutions
and more to serve you.
There are tarnisch free (silver) alloy’s of all kinds made for this
purpose. Why looking for more complicated way’s which cost you more
then what’s already available on the market?
The wheel is already invented and hot water aswell.
I know that 3M strips will keep your silver nice and shinning for
more then six months! Costs, $10 US for 16 strips.
By fact I know that rio grande sell’s 1000 (!) strips for something
like $40 US. If one believes that this is to expensive then figure out
howmuch time it costs to clean your silver items and you still need
to buy the polisching cloth.
By all means, any silversmith should know that sulphur causes silver
to tarnisch. It’s like dust on furniture and yes you need to clean
your furniture after a while. More dust, more work, no way around it.
This topic is uncountless times mentioned in the ganoksin forum
about tarnisching questions. In matter of fact, it’s basic knowledge.
Sulphur is all over the place and even in human sweat.
I’m not blaming anybody knowing that I’m a straight forward person.
