I own a few silver plated razors I like lot but don't use them too often as the silver plated surfaces tarnish.

How do you keep your silver plated razors shiny?
Please let me know your preferred method.

This was an ongoing problem in middle- and upper middle-class households for years:  How to keep the seldom-used good silverware polished?  So you can go down that hole with some research.  But nothing much worked, so when a major holiday came around, much time was spent polishing the silver.  Either that, or you had servants whose task it was to polish daily.

It helps to live in a dry climate (tarnish being oxidation, like rust on iron).  Or you could store them in sealed plastic bags (vacuum sealing would be best), especially if you include a dessicant, such as silica gel or dry rice.

Or you could just not worry about it and enjoy polishing them now and again.  Cape Cod makes a nice brand of impregnated polishing cloths.

Razor Emporium has a metal cleaning cloth (cost $5.) which does an excellent job of cleaning and taking out mild surfaces scratches silver, gold, ti, etc.
