Brass items can be found in many households. Cleaning them is not too complicated as long as you know how to do it properly. You can maintain all brass objects clean and shiny with a bit of elbow grease and some common household products you probably already have at home.

Cleaning sterling silver and maintaining it in a good condition

Sterling silver has a nice glow and comes in many detailed pieces and decorations. Silver is known to develop a patina that enhances its beauty, especially with carved or ornate pieces. Unfortunately, silver does indeed tarnish when exposed to salts, acids, and oxygen. The good news is that this can be easily cleaned and with regular maintenance, you will be able to keep it under check.

Sterling silver pieces have a marking that is 925. It shows that the piece contains 92.5 % silver and 7.5 % other metals, usually copper or nickel. The reason for that is that pure silver is extremely soft and pieces made of it can be bent very easily so jewellery and pieces made of it would be incredibly inconvenient. Any item with that mark is made of solid silver and it is not simply plated with the metal.
