How to clean silver cutlery effortlessly?

Tableware & Cooking

The festive season is fast approaching, and with it comes the warm moments spent with family and friends over festive meals. It's the perfect time to bring out your silverware and restore it to its former glory. Instead of letting these precious objects lie dormant in a cupboard, it's time to use them and bring them back to life. 

Thanks to Hagerty products, cleaning your silver is as simple as it is magical.


Using your silver during the festive season: perpetuate the tradition

Silver is not only functional, it is also steeped in history and tradition. During the festive season, it takes on special importance, embellishing your table and adding a touch of elegance to your meals. 

However, after being neglected for some time, silverware may need a thorough cleaning to restore it to its former glory. That's where Hagerty care comes in, offering a simple and effective solution.


Hagerty products for effective silver cleaning

Over 125 years ago, the brand developed its first cleaning product for silverware. Today, it has 7 different formulas for the care of silver objects.

In this range, 3 products stand out for their effectiveness and ease of use in restoring shine to tableware.


Hagerty Silver Bath 

Silver Bath is a cleaning bath specially designed for the care of silver and silver-plated cutlery. The jar contains a basket in which you simply place your cutlery and leave it to soak in the formula for 3 minutes. Then rinse and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

With no effort on your part, the black stains will disappear and your cutlery will be back to its former glory in an instant.


Hagerty Silver Care

For those who prefer a more manual approach, Silver Care is an ideal cleaning paste for silverware and silver-plated base metal. Its quick and easy application will bring your pieces back to life in the blink of an eye.

This product is ideal for caring for tarnished silverware, and its fast action makes it particularly useful for maintaining objects used regularly for service.


Hagerty Silver & Multimetal Foam

Silver & Multimetal Foam is a cleaning foam specially designed to care for silver, pewter and steel. It is the solution to adopt when the silver coating on your silver-plated objects wears off or is damaged over time. 

Stainless steel cutlery and other accessories can also be cleaned with this product.


Protect your silver after cleaning

Cleaning is only one part of the equation when it comes to keeping your cutlery and tableware looking their best. It's just as important to protect them after cleaning. Not only to preserve them, but also to simplify their use at your next festive event.

Hagerty offers two protective covers impregnated against oxidation:

- Silver Guards Cutlery roll: Perfect for storing and protecting your silver cutlery. There are 8 different sizes, each adapted to the type of cutlery. Each roll can hold 12 pieces. These covers are ideal for keeping your services shiny between uses.

- Silver Guards Holloware bag: Specially designed for larger silver objects (silver plate, trays, candle holders, teapots, etc.), Hagerty's 3 holloware bags provide optimum protection to preserve the beauty of your silverware.


Tips for cleaning your silver cutlery: Avoid common mistakes

When you are getting ready to bring your silver objects back to life for the festive season, a few common mistakes can compromise their shine and quality. Here are a few precautions you can take to avoid these inconveniences.


Use appropriate cleaners

It's crucial to avoid abrasive or corrosive cleaners that could scratch or damage the surface of the silver. Instead, opt for products specially designed for silver (such as Hagerty), which offer in-depth cleaning without damaging the quality of the silver.


Avoid aggressive cleaning tools

Hard brushes or abrasive sponges can also cause damage. Use a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponges to preserve the integrity of your silver.


Adopt a gentle cleaning method 

Excessive rubbing can damage the surface of the metal. Opt for a gentle cleaning technique, using light circular movements to remove dirt.

By following these simple but vital recommendations, you'll not only preserve the lustre and quality of your silver, you'll also ensure that it shines brightly for the next occasion.


In conclusion, silverware should not be relegated to the status of a mere collector's item. Don't leave it unused in a cupboard, and don't be afraid to use it!

Thanks to Hagerty products, cleaning and preserving your precious objects is simple, quick and effortless, allowing you to enjoy their brilliance for many years, and from generation to generation...
