Silver is suitable for everyday wear and can be cleaned with a sterling silver cleaning cloth, however more difficult tarnishing may require the use of silver polish/dip. Ichu recommends that silver be washed regularly by hand in warm water with a small amount of detergent, before being rinsed thoroughly and stores in an Ichu jewellery pouch. Regular polishing with an silver polishing cloth is recommended to give the silver a radiant finish.
