Silver, is a relatively soft metal that requires sympathetic handling and cleaning, by adhering to the following rules, cutlery of this quality will last for decades.
Your silverware may be tarnished by sulphides that are always present to some extent in the atmosphere and in many foods, green vegetables and eggs being the most potent.
Sulphides in the atmosphere originate mainly from combustion of gas, oil, coke, wood etc and from living creatures. The tips of the EPNS forks are most prone to tarnish as they are in regular contact with eggs, salt, condiments and very hot foodstuffs.
Dark spots may arise when silverware comes into contact with undissolved salt in hot solutions of certain powder detergents. Liquid bleaches should never be used and powder detergents should always be dissolved before use.
Your cutlery should be rinsed off as soon as possible after use. Allowing food to dry on the surface of the cutlery gives the salts and acids in the food more time to act and cause tarnishing.
Your Newbridge Silverware EPNS cutlery may be cleaned in the dishwasher however it is vital that you adhere to a few simple rules.
Adhere to the dishwasher manufactures/ detergent makers instructions concerning the type and quality of detergent used and the method of loading cutlery in the compartments provided.
To keep your Silverware in good condition handwashing is the safest option.
It is recommended to polish your silver-plated cutlery twice per year to maintain its brilliant finish. Too much polishing can wear down the silver finish.
Between polishes, buffing with a soft dry cotton cloth will preserve its beautiful glow.
If tarnish occurs it can be removed by silver polish or silver dip.
Silver is a soft metal and it is important to use the recommended polishes/dips to keep your silverware in pristine condition.
If you are using a silver polish, make sure it is a reputable brand, for example, Hegarty.
With all polishes it is vital to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Silver dip provides a rapid, less ardous method of de-tarnishing, especially on heavily embossed designs. The following precautions must be taken:
The characteristic white 'patina' of silver which is responsible for much of its aesthetic appeal becomes more pronounced with age due to the optical effect of the multitude of very fine scratches that develop in use. On new highly polished silver, however, the few fine isolated scratches that first appear tend to be somewhat conspicuous until the white patina has fully developed.
While every effort is being made to ensure that the cutlery you have just purchased is in perfect condition, there may be some small variations in size, shape and finish as each piece of Newbridge Cutlery product is individually finished.
