From today, I will be posting a tutorial on every Tuesday, so that’s why the name. Today is my first tutorial about the cleaning of silver with toothpaste.
Yes, you can clean tarnished silver with toothpaste. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.
See, how tarnished this silver tumbler is. It was a gift to my older daughter from my mom, when she was born.
Any toothpaste would do. Does not have to be a fancy one. I have one from the Dollar store just to keep in my kitchen for cleaning purpose.
Apply the toothpaste to the tarnished silver generously.
Then just rub it clean with paper towel, a clean cotton rag or even your hands, if you don’t mind getting them dirty.
That’s it! Silver tumbler shiny and new again.
I have also cleaned silver ear rings with the same technique. Instead of using the rag, I have used soft bristle tooth brush for rubbing.
One last shot of before and after.
