Using Everbrite with Silver or Bronze

ProtectaClear is specially formulated to work with raw metals and can protect your silver and bronze against tarnishing and keep it looking like it was just polished.

Suitable for jewelry, candlesticks, chandeliers and anything else made from silver or bronze, ProtectaClear creates a thin protective coating on the metal to protect it from the elements.

Just polish, apply ProtectaClear and never worry about polishing again.

 

Cleaning Silver with Baking Soda

 

Many cleaners are available to remoev taarnishing but at Everbrite, we have found a bit of a hack using baking soda and aluminium foil. Not only will it leave your silver free from tarnish, it is made up of basic items you can find at the supermarket.

All you need to do is find a container large enough to sit your silver in. Then just fill with enough water to completely cover your silver and add a couple of tablespoons of bicarbonate or baking soda.

Wrap your silver in the aluminium foil and submerge it into the solution.

Let it rest. The amount of time needed with depend on how badly tarnished your silver is but the baking soda and alumunium foil create a small reaction which in turn lifts the tarnishing straight off the silver. No scrubbing or using a harsh metal. Just rinse and dry.

DO NOT wear rubber gloves when cleaning your silver as rubber is corrosive to silver and will damage your item.

 

Preparing your Silver or Bronze

 

Before you apply ProtectaClear to your silver or bronze, you will want to give it a good polish to ensure that it is looking good before locking out the elements.

The team at Everbrite and many of our customers have used many different polishers and found that MAAS Concentrated Creme Polish is one of the best options. It is a non-acid basic polisher, which means you can polish, wipe and seal with ProtectaClear.

If you do use an acid based polish, you will need to neutralize the acid using another substance, such as EZ-Prep Cleaner and Neutralizer before you apply ProtectaClear.
