Dtarnish Your Tarnished Silver Jewelry!

 

When silver tarnishes, it combines with sulfur and forms silver sulfide. Silver sulfide is black. When a thin coating of silver sulfide forms on the surface of silver, it darkens the silver. The silver can be returned to its former luster by removing the silver sulfide coating from the surface.

There are two ways to remove the coating of silver sulfide. One way is to remove the silver sulfide from the surface. The other is to reverse the chemical reaction and turn silver sulfide back into silver.

If you have any objects made from silver or plated with silver, you know that the bright, shiny surface of silver gradually darkens and becomes less shiny. This happens because silver undergoes a chemical reaction with sulfur-containing substances in the air. You can use chemistry to reverse the tarnishing reaction and make the silver shiny again.

 

    Dtranish your Tarnished Silver Jewelry

    For this experiment you will need:
    • In small bowl add one cup of boiling water
    • Add 1TBS Detarnish magical silver jewelry cleaning powder
    • Mix well
    • Add silver screen in to the bowl
    • Add your favorite tarnished jewelry
    • Let it sit for 10-15 min
    • Wash it dish soap and warm water
    • Dry it and wipe it with Dtranish silver jewelry cleaning cloth
    Almost immediately, the tarnish will begin to disappear. If the silver is only lightly tarnished, all of the tarnish will disappear within several minutes. If the silver is badly tarnished, you may need to give the silver several treatments to remove all of the tarnish.

    The reaction between silver sulfide and Silver Screen takes place when the two are in contact while they are immersed in a Detarnish solution. The reaction is faster when the solution is warm. The solution carries the sulfur from the silver to the silver screen. The silver sulfide may adhere to the silver screen, or it may form tiny, pale yellow flakes in the bottom of the pan. The silver and silver screen must be in contact with each other because a small electric current flows between them during the reaction.

    FAQ

    Is this method safe for amber jewelry?

    No. Never place amber in liquid - just wipe the amber with a dry soft cloth.
    Can I clean silver jewelry containing crystals with Dtarnish?
    We cleaned Swarovski crystal and sterling silver earrings with it and had no problem. The Swarovskis were crystal with the AB finish, and it's just as shiny as it was before.
    How can I do this for more than one load?
    It's a chemical reaction that's doing the work, so when the chemicals are used up, it stops working. So, after the first batch is done, remove it and put the next one in. If it works, great. If it doesn't, it's time to start over, including replacing the Silver Screen.
    My pendant has a gold bezel, can I emerge gold into the Dtarnish solution without damage?
    Yes, gold will not rust or tarnish.
    Is this process safe for lab generated diamonds?
    Yes. Lab generated diamonds are the same as normal diamonds on a physical level. The only real difference between the two is that natural diamonds have fractures and imperfections. Either way, the diamond should be fine.
    Can I use this with gems?
    If your gems are all genuine semi-precious or precious stones and there are no glues or enamel paints involved with their settings, you can clean them with this solution.
