TIP OF THE DAY: Wash Silver Separately

Kitchen chemistry applies to more than just food preparation.

If you’re washing sterling silver and stainless steel flatware at the same time, keep them at opposite ends of the dishwasher basket.

Electrolysis, a chemical reaction between the two metals, will wear away at the silver over time.

The same thing goes for washing flatware in the sink: don’t soak sterling and stainless together.

Of course, it’s best to wash fine silver by hand. Abrasive dishwasher detergents will gradually wear at silver’s surface. But facing a large post-party clean-up, the dishwasher is alluring.

  • Here’s how to care for your fine crystal.
