cleaning Silver Plate

jessica | May 26, 2006 12:37 PM

Another cleaning question, sorry all!

I have a collection of silverplate utensils I use for everyday eating (oneida community plate in case this makes a difference). I polished them about 2-3 months ago, but now the tarnish has come back!
I'm relatively new at the cleaning and care of silverplate, so I don't know how often this should be done or which polisher is the best.
I use a dishwasher to clean the pieces, but I have recently heard that putting silver plate in the dishwasher is a bad idea, could this really be causing tons of tarnish?
