Chamois leather or silver cloth I｜Chamois leather or silver cloth
If you go to a silver care product store (Tokyu Hands, etc.), you will usually find the one pictured below or something similar.
I went shopping for care products, but what should I buy? There are several types, which is a problem.
I think there are many people who have had such an experience. I would like to briefly explain the difference and usage for such times.
Chamois <deerskin> : Harp Co., Ltd.
Chamois is leather that has been softened to wipe natural leather. Unlike man-made materials, it has a finer fiber structure, making it suitable for absorbing and removing dirt such as grease and finger marks.
After removing the jewelry, wiping it dry with a chamois leather removes sweat and sebum stains and helps prevent the silver from tarnishing or tarnishing. (* Leaving dirt for a long time may cause cloudiness or discoloration, making it difficult to clean with just chamois leather.)
If you take care of your hair on a daily basis, the changes will be very different after that, so if you want to take care of yourself as a habit, please refer to it.
There are differences in specifications such as thickness even if it goes to chamois leather in one word. They are generally the same in terms of functionality, but I think it would be better for you to choose from thick and solid textures to thin and soft ones depending on the shape and use of the jewelry.
The [chamois leather <deerskin>: Harp Co., Ltd.] in the previous image is relatively thick and sturdy.
For thin and soft leather, the [chamois leather: Lezax] below is reasonably priced and recommended for finely decorated items such as jewelry.
The big difference between chamois leather and silver cloth, which is the title of this time, is that chamois leather does not contain abrasive ingredients. As explained at the beginning, chamois leather is made from natural leather that has been softened, and does not have the property of being scraped off when wiped. Absorbs and removes dirt. Therefore, it is not possible to clean the discoloration peculiar to silver.
However, since it does not contain abrasives, it can be wiped off without damaging jewelery. In particular, since diamonds are lipophilic, sebum stains easily adhere to them, so chamois leather is recommended for cleaning.
Perfect for daily care. (After wearing, etc.)
Absorbs and removes sweat and sebum stains.
No abrasive ingredients.
Next time, I will write about silver cloth containing abrasives.
