I discovered this by accident! Every month I polish all my jewelry on display but the pieces I keep stored never need cleaning. The difference? The stored pieces are in individual ziplock bags and organized inside a tupperware shoe box. Oxygen is what makes your sterling and copper tarnish. Keep your pieces separate from each other in small ziploack bags when you aren't wearing them and store them in an air tight container. You'll be able to go a very long time without cleaning!
