Silver polishing made easy

Whether your silver is inherited or new, it deserves to be used a lot.
Here are our best usage and cleaning tips!

Use the cutlery often, then it needs less polishing

If you choose to use the silver cutlery often and yes, preferably every day, you will get a lot of pleasure out of it. With frequent use, the cutlery holds up better. The wonderful thing is that silver cutlery that is used often needs much less cleaning and care than if you use it infrequently. Also remember that silver cutlery is not "used up" with frequent use, and can therefore be enjoyed for generations.

Wash your silverware in the dishwasher

Contrary to what you may have heard before, silverware is perfectly safe to wash in the dishwasher! Our experience is that Sun washing-up powder works very well in combination with silver. Just make sure the silver doesn't come into contact with the steel.

Fast and efficient sanding

There are good sprays, creams, cloths, mitts etc. that make the sanding quick and efficient. Find your favorite polishing product and polishing is a breeze.

Shiny shiny silver without polishing

Place aluminum foil in the bottom of the kitchen sink or a large bowl. Put in hot water (enough to cover the cutlery) and put in 3-6 tablespoons of salt and 3-6 tablespoons of baking soda per liters of water. When the salt and baking soda have dissolved, you can add the silver. The liquid must be in contact with the foil for it to work. How long the cutlery should stay in the mixture and how much salt and baking soda is needed depends, among other things, on how tarnished the silver is, so here you have to experiment a bit to find the right mixing ratio. When the silver is shiny and glossy, it is rinsed in running warm water and dried.

Remember that cutlery that has been oxidized to bring out the pattern should not be polished in this way. Of our cutlery patterns, Dobbel Rococco and Elveseter are examples of designs that should be polished in the traditional way.
