Straw Bombilla
Bombilla / Yerba Mate Straw – Is it safe to use if inside is tarnished?

They are 925 sterling silver. I cleaned them with silver polish for china. But unable to wipe the inside of the straw. Is it ok to use if tarnished?

I would try to find a small brush that fits the straw to clean it. Tarnish won’t hurt you, it is just silver sulfide and oxide. The polish should be washed off thoroughly however. That could ruin your yerba mate.
