* The best thing you can do for your jewelry is wear it, and often.
The natural oils from your body help keep sterling silver polished,

-A bowl (unless you are using an aluminum container)

container, it becomes the bowl and dissolve Washing soda in the
warm tap water in it.
You only need enough water to submerge the piece of jewelry.
Submerge sterling jewelry into the water and make sure all of it
touches the aluminum, do this by moving the piece around a bit atop
the aluminum. Leave in this water for about 10 minutes. (NOTE, NEVER
submerge soldered wallpaper pendants in water, these are not waterproof)
the jewelry from the water and wash & rinse thoroughly under
running luke warm water with soap, and then let air-dry until completely
