I dont think you should clean them to some people it ruins the value. Toning on coins adds value I really dont know about bars.
You can get airtites to store them.

its just for personal taste. I'm only in it for the silver value alone just like the shiny look. that being said, where can i get airtime?

the stuff above is super easy to use. If you need something numismatic cleaned I have a friend that will professionally dip and clean it for 8 bucks. Keep in mind it doesn't hurt the value of it. I actually just got back my 1928 peace dollar and it came back an ms63 and my buddy dipped it along with some others before sending in to get them graded.

Then you're lucky, most grading companies can tell when a coin has been dipped and it will absolutely destroy collecting value.

I thought the same thing until my buddy started his restoration service.
He told me if my coin came back cleaned he would give me full ask price as if it wasn't cleaned. Ive been holding onto these "dirty" coins for a long time and im surprised at how nice of a job he does. I will grab a couple of them and take pics as he does amazing work
