How to clean silver earrings?

There are several ways you can use to clean your silver earrings. Silver tends to tarnish the more it oxidizes. To clean it easily you just need a salt bath. Take a bowl of warm water and add salt to it. Then take your earrings and soak them in the salt solution for 5 – 10 minutes. Brush them gently to clean the earrings thoroughly.

The bath cleanses gently and removes the tarnish without damaging the silver. Once the earrings are clean, rinse them with cold water. Dry the earrings using a soft cloth or microfiber towel. Do remember though the salt bath is gentle on most gemstones, make sure it is not fine jewelry studded with expensive stones. If that is the case, then you must take the earrings to the jeweler to clean it professionally.
