Shining - In order to ensure that your silver piece retains its
shine, it is recommended to wipe it gently, using a soft and dry
cloth, once every two weeks. This prevents yellowing or blackening
of the silver piece, and maintains its glowing appearance.
Cleaning following use - The silver piece must be washed
immediately after use, especially if it has come into contact with
vinegar, lemon, wine, or salt. After washing, the piece should be
dried with a soft cloth.
Wax stains - If the silver piece comes in contact with wax,
the wax can be removed with hot water.
Periodic cleaning - Only silver cleaning products bearing a
stamp of approval should be used to clean the products, in
accordance with the instructions appearing on the back of the
cleaning products themselves.
Preventing scratching and bending - Coarse cloths, or any
other abrasive products that could potentially result in scratches,
should not be used to clean the piece. Do not apply excessive
force when cleaning the piece, especially when cleaning Hanukkah
Menorahs or candelabras.
Gold plated pieces - The gold plated section of gold plated
pieces should not be cleaned with silver cleaning products, but
only with a soft, dry cloth.
Preserving your piece - Avoid exposing the piece to direct
sunlight or to direct sources of heat/cold.
