We love silver but we hate polishing it. We use it every day so we like to keep it in the drawer. But we were at a loss as how to keep it shiny and avoid the dreaded task. Until we heard that keeping a few sticks of chalk in the drawer with our knives, forks and spoons would slow down the process. Now our silver stays bright and shiny and we never have to polish it anymore. Which lets us enjoy our silver even more.
How does it work? The chalk absorbs the moisture that is in the area that the silverware is being kept, thus slowing down the tarnishing process. You could additionally use charcoal wrapped in cheese cloth or a moisture absorbing product for the closet to the same effect.
