How To Clean Silver With Toothpaste

Author : Efrain S.

Now you come to a page that I have been wanting to write to you for quite a number of months, or maybe even a couple of years, at this point, he he he heh, and it is how to clean your silver…. but just with any method. In fact, as you probably already know I hinted at in the title to this, I am going to show you how to do it all with toothpaste itself, something you may not have ever thought in your wildest dreams could ever be possible or even that people are doing it these days ( and yes they are, as a matter of fact, just see the countless YouTube videos on the topic already as well as new eBooks coming out all the time…. it’s fastly becoming a DIY world and all about helping people save time and save money, all in all, he heh, which I am all for ) .

The toothpaste you want to get will be non – abrasive, as a matter of fact, so make sure that it is ( and not other types, of course… and to be totally sure on this, you can ask a store associate or merch manager to fully verify this data for you, or you can look on the label or even go the supplier’s main site if they have one, and just ask them all your questions there to confirm, he heh ) . Not only non – abrasive, but non – gel, is what it needs to be. I cannot stress the importance of this enough, so do not buy the toothpaste until you are sure, as in most cases, opened toothpaste tubes are not returnable in most stores, and for good reason, he heh ( I, for one, would not want to buy a tube of toothpaste that has already been opened and used by someone else, especially right now during a global health pandemic scare… bad idea it is, I must say ) .

Get a paper hankie or napkin. Or heck, if you have one, a small towel or cloth will do just fine as well. And from there, you are going to squeeze a very light dab of your toothpaste on it. This’ll polish and remove tarnish…. scrub in circles around the whole silver areas. Let things sit for 5 – 10 good minutes after you have done so, and then once ready, wash and rinse off that silver with some water until you get all the toothpaste out successfully. Simple and done, right? And the very fact of the matter is this : That you can use this quick, easy method with just about anything from forks to jewelry to car rims, he heh. Anything that is silver or composite silver…. or even a silver – similar product ( like fake silver, which is actually plastic, in many cases, by the way ) .
