By Jeffrey Herman on November 4, 2013
As a silver restoration and conservation specialist, I have many years of knowledge about chemical dips, especially Tarn-X. I routinely receive objects for refinishing due to damage from this horribly destructive product. (I mention Tarn-X more than any other dip because of its overwhelming market share.)

Tarn-X works by dissolving the tarnish (and silver!) on an object at an accelerated rate.

Tarn-X will quickly remove factory-applied patinas (if left in the solution for more than a few seconds) or gradually (if dipped quickly each time the object requires cleaning). You'll notice a soft white surface develop over time.

Tarn-X will cause pitting of the object's surface. These surface defects will act like a sponge and more readily absorb tarnish-producing gases and moisture. The object will eventually require professional polishing to restore the original finish.

Tarn-X is made up of acidified thiourea (a known carcinogen). Acids are corrosive and will damage silver, niello, bronze, stainless steel knife blades, and organic materials such as wood and ivory.

Tarn-X, when used on objects that have sealed components, such as candlesticks and trophies with hollow feet, or teapots with hollow handles, may leak into the cavity through small holes or imperfections in the joints. At this point, it becomes virtually impossible to wash the chemical out. If you're working on a baby cup with this type of rim, do you really want an infant drinking from it after using Tarn-X?

I Love Tarn-X! I use it on my gold, my diamonds, garnets. It works instantly! Just dip and rinse and it's clean. Amazing!

Antique mesh purses were all the rage in the 1920's and are fun to collect. After 90 or so years, these purses become seriously tarnished. Pastes and creams are a nightmare to work with. I'd read that Tarn-X works miracles on these. I decided to try Tarn-X and the results were nothing short of AMAZING! One quick dip of about 20 seconds, followed by copious rinsing and the purses looked like new! See for yourself - I posted before, during and after pictures. I am not too crazy about the smell, but it does dissipate quickly. Not for use on stainless steel, so be careful when using it in a stainless steel kitchen sink. (Quick and copious rinsing required). I used an old plastic container for the dipping (One of those grocery-store clear plastic muffin containers). I will never use any other product after using this!

Just an FYI: this can be used on painted mesh bags (dresden-types) but NOT the enamel-painted antique bags. Not sure what would happen, but I read that it's not good :)

This stuff smells like a dead animal, just awful. And you have to read the fine print because you have to buy a separate polish to use afterwards otherwise the silver looks like it's been ruined.

I've been using silver wipes which effectively remove the tarnish and have a built in polish so no need for two products, and without the awful smell. Will definitely get more wipes and never use this tarn-x stuff again, ICK!

Take a small amount and rub it on your jewelry or piece of metal, and the original shine and color returns. Pretty remarkable, though it does NOT work on stainless steel (it says so on the bottle, and I confirmed it as such). I initially used some paper towels to wipe my necklace for fear of burning my skin, but after accidentally touching the chemical, I found that it didn't affect me at all. I was able to clean the rest bare handed, but I don't recommend it. Get some cheap latex gloves to use. Also, make sure you work in a well ventilated area so that the smell of the chemicals don't overwhelm you.

Over the years we have accumulated a few sterling and silverplate pieces that need occasional cleaning; some were passed down from family, and others were given to us as gifts. Cleaning them is not what I would call a fun job, but it has to be done.

This is the time of the year, holiday time when family comes to visit, that those pieces need to look their best... so we set aside a day just before Thanksgiving to get that job done.

Always looking for a shortcut -- a few years ago we tried this liquid cleaner instead of the cream-style cleaner that we traditionally used. This liquid was definitely easier to get into the cracks & crevices, and maybe that is exactly what your piece needs, but here are several observations leading to our return to the cream cleaning product: (a) Tarn-X's sulfur-like smell was crazy, filling our entire house for hours; (b) the pieces seemed to yellow fairly quickly after cleaning; (c) the resulting 'shine' seemed to have less depth (seemed to have a white-ish tinge on the surface).

We followed direction on the bottle for application and tried one complete bottle before making the decision to stop using it.

As a kid, I remember my mom and grandmother using a cream to clean their silver and that is what we have returned to using. Cleaning with a cream does involve a little bit more elbow grease than this liquid did, but it is not that bad - a small dab of cream goes a long way, does not smell like this liquid product did, and creates a great shine that seems to last a comparatively long time.
