Rhodium-plated sterling jewelry care?

My mom got me this really nice sterling silver chain that is rhodium-plated. Now, i understood that rhodium-plated is not supposed to tarnish. well, mine did after very little wear. i had another sterling silver chain that tarnished very quickly bc i think of my body oils that wash off on the jewlery around the neck line.

so i got a silver polishing cloth and it worked like a charm. but, is the cloth just a one time use thing bc now it is all dirty from the rub? do i only use it once and it is done or can i keep re-using it?

and what is the best care for rhodium-plated jewelry such as this? thanks.

The few things I have that are rhodium plated have not tarnished.

The silver polishing cloth that I have says it is meant to be used until the whole thing is pretty much dirty. I've been using it for quite a while and the dark spots on it do not seem to affect the cloth's cleaning much.
