There is an article by Mark Gilberg and Clifford Cook in the IIC-CG
Newsletter vol. XII no. 4, June 1987 pages 14-17 entitled 'Tarnish
Inhibitive Papers and Cloths for Silver', where the authors compared
several products and found Pacific Silvercloth to work the best.  By
the way, Mark Gilberg also wrote 'The Use of Camphor to Protect
Silver Against Tarnishing' where he found it efficient as well; it
is in the IIC-CG Newsletter vol. XII no. 3 March 1987, page 19.
Lyndsie Selwyn, conservation scientist, is the current specialist on
sliver at CCI one may wish to contact.
