if you are looking to clean plain sterling silver items (as opposed to items w beaded or bezel set stones) i would highly recommend this old home remedy

1. line a bowl/pan w aluminum foil and fill w hot water

2. place the tarnished jewellery on the foil and be sure the water covers the jewellery

3. add equal parts salt-baking soda-dish washing liquid (like 1 tbsp/) and let soak 5-10 min

4. remove, rinse w warm water, dry and buff w clean cloth

i would also recommend always storing your jewellery in air-tight plastic bags when you are not wearing them…

peace out and sparkle—lg
