This was included with a purchase. I suspect they don't appreciate patina or just how much damage can be done by over polishing with rouge base polishes.
Caring for Your Sterling Silver
By following a few guidelines, caring for your Sterling Silver is relatively simple and will add to its beauty and personal value.
  1. Before each wearing, polish your Sterling Silver with a rouge treated Polishing Cloth. Our Silpada Polishing Cloths are treated with a special jeweler’s rouge
    polish, which removes light tarnish and does not scratch your jewelry. For heavier tarnish, we recommend Wright’s Silver Cream. Follow directions carefully.
  2. After each wearing, polish and store your Sterling Silver in an airtight compartment or plastic bag to minimize tarnishing.
  3. Put your jewelry on last. Exposing your jewelry to hair spray, cosmetics and perfume can cause tarnish. In addition, jewelry should be removed before
    swimming (chlorine), showering, dishwashing, handling bleaches, alcohols or cleansers.
  4. For safety reasons, and to minimize scratching, jewelry should also be removed when participating in yard work, heavy cleaning or sports activities.

My advice: Polish once or when tarnish is noticeable and undesired. After each wearing, wash with a mild soap, in sulfur free water, dry and store as they suggest "store your Sterling Silver in an airtight compartment or plastic bag to minimize tarnishing."
