What are Anti-Tarnish Strips?

and other items from unsightly discoloration and tarnish. Strips protect silver,
nickel, copper, bronze, brass, tin and gold.
How do they work?

(main tarnish causing agent), sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide (a secondary
pollutant of photochemical smog, also produced in combustion process), ozone,
hydrogen, chloride and chlorine and organic carboxylic acid.
How long will these strips protect?
Length of time depends on permeability of the storage or
shipping container and the pollution level of the surrounding atmosphere. These
estimates may very based on location. Approximately 6 months in a jewelry case
or other enclosed area. In a sealed bag these will last up to 24 months.

One strip covers 425 cubic inches or .25 cubic ft.
