Hagerty silver clean solution

This is the stuff I use in the studio to clean silver chain and other bits and bobs that are too fine or delicate to be easily cleaned with a Sunshine polishing cloth.

 

PRO TIP:  I often find that silver that has darkened or turned black is actually dirty as well as tarnished (and most of the black is dirt).  So give your silver a good clean with a soft cloth and some warm soapy water first.  Then, rinse off and dry before dipping in the cleaning solution.  (And then rinse again as per the instructions on the box,)

 

So what's it really like to use? 

  • Well first of all, it's a little bit stinky - but not excessively so.  I guess it's more like a cheap perfume than anything else.  Probably best to make sure you have good ventilation when you are using it. 

  • Inside the tub is a little basket so you can more easily dip your silver jewellery into the liquid.

  • This stuff is industrial (professional) strength and it works fast.  For most tarnish, it's just a quick dip in and out.  More heavily tarnished items might take a little longer so a quick dip with a back-and forth-swish (or two) of the basket will clean most silver.  This is not a product you soak things in for hours!   And don't forget to RINSE your silver after you've dipped it. 

  • The dip is safe for silver-plated jewellery as well as solid silver, but avoid dipping any jewellery with any sort of gemstone set in it.  (You might be ok, but some gemstones can be easily damaged so probably not worth the risk.)

  • You might need to wipe the rim of the tub down after use.  After using my own tub of cleaner several times I noticed there was  a little bit of build-up around the edges - but that might just be me dribbling it everywhere. 

  • Online product reviews suggested that keeping the tub in a plastic bag might be wise as the tubs have been known to leak if they get tipped over.   Some reviewers have also suggested that gloves might help to keep the unique scent of this cleaner off your hands.
