Sunshine Polishing Cloths are the same cloths I use to polish every Sterling Silver and Nickel Silver Pendant from The Run Home.
Sterling Silver will tarnish over time. Exposure to air and lack of use make the conditions perfect for tarnishing. Sterling Silver Jewelry items should be worn often. Natural wear will give it a beautiful patina and it will also minimize tarnishing.
When you are not wearing your item from The Run Home, store it in the Ziplock baggie it arrived in to lock out the air. Sterling Silver pieces will all arrive with a 3M Anti Tarnish Tab to minimize tarnish. When tarnish does begin to develop, gently rub the dry Sterling Silver piece with the Sunshine Polishing Cloth to restore the natural shine!
Nickel Silver does not tarnish but over time it can look dingy and form a green patina. Simply rub with the Sunshine Polishing Cloth to restore the natural beauty!
I have been so happy with the Sunshine Polishing Cloths, I wanted to offer them to my customers for all their Jewelry, even items not from The Run Home! They make polishing a breeze! The result is a mirror-like finish with very little effort. Each cloth is a 7 1/2 x 5 inch chamois style cloth that has been impregnated with a microabrasive powder material that acts as the polishing agent. Over time the cloth will start to look grey, and then black, as it takes off the tarnish. You can use these until they are jet-black. When your Sunshine polishing Cloth is completely black, simply throw it out.
Each Sunshine Polishing Cloth will arrive in a small Ziplock bag with an instruction card.
The official instructions for these cloths are:
