    Maybe somebody can help me. Our wedding set (knife, cake server, and glasses) is all silver. It keeps getting very tarnished. I have used the tarnish remover and it comes out very nice, but just tarnishes again. Do they make some sort of "wax" for silver to prevent this?

    Nothing will keep silver completely tarnish free over the long term, but there are bags and cloths impregnated with a chemical that helps retard tarnish buildup that you wrap your silver in. They work pretty well. I use them for my silver pieces. It's designed for silverware and silver pieces like you describe. You can get it at Bed, Bath and Beyond or Linens and Things, or any large finer department store in the silver, crystal, plate section.
