How is Tarnish Tamer Used?
With that said, take care not to remove all the patina from older silver jewelry using products that strip away tarnish like dip and rinse cleaners. A polishing cloth works best in this instance. In fact, it always pays to evaluate the rarity and how cleaning an object might affect the value prior to cleaning a metal antique of any kind.
After items are cleaned as necessary and appropriate, dry and free of all fingerprints, cleaner deposits, etc., they are placed directly inside the Tarnish Tamer products. The larger zipper bag is designed to hold one larger item. The fabric drawstring pouches can accommodate one larger piece of jewelry, like a cuff bracelet, or several smaller pieces, and they close tightly when the strings are pulled firmly shut. The jewelry roll and silverware roll both hold multiple pieces.
Tarnish Tamer strips are actually placed inside jewelry cases (for items too large to fit in the drawstring pouches or groups of jewelry), storage bags and boxes, china cabinets, drawers, instrument cases, or any other contained areas where tarnish prone metals are stored. They can be cut to fit inside small boxes with individual pieces of jewelry.
How Long Does Tarnish Tamer Last?
How Does It Work?
Tarnish Tamer is clean and non-abrasive, and will not harm gemstones set in jewelry. It works independently of temperature and humidity, a major trigger in tarnish formation, making it suitable for all types of storage environments.
And because they contain no harmful chemicals, these products are considered non-toxic and environmentally friendly. They do not emit gases or leave deposits. Additionally, Tarnish Tamer strips are hypoallergenic and recyclable. In fact, once discarded they will eventually break down into polymer dust.
