Abstract

Several treatments appear in the bibliography to clean the tarnished silver. However, the information about the aspect and efficiency of the cleanings is spread or not completely detailed in these works. With this purpose, a worldwide survey has been carried out to identify of the most common treatments for cleaning tarnished silver and the personal experience of professionals about the frequency of use, the cleaning efficiency, the surface appearance, the application speed, the difficulty and the applicability. This paper contains the results of this survey.
