Cleaning Sterling Silver Jewelry

Cleaning your sterling silver jewelry isn`t a hard task.

And the best of all is that you don`t need to have a silversmith kit to do it. All you need is actually in you bathroom. That`s right, toothpaste is great to remove those black stains on silver. 

Step 1

Grab your toothpaste (the white kind works the best) and grab a piece of cloth or paper towel.

Step 2

Spread some tooth paste on the piece and rub it with the cloth until the tarnish come off.

Step 3

wash the piece of jewelry with water and dry it with a towel.

Easy, right?

You just have to be careful about 2 things. 

1. This technique is best for cleaning sterling silver jewelry, so you should avoid using it on silver plated ones, since it may remove the thin silver layer.

2. Toothpaste maybe a little too abrasive for some pieces of jewelry. If it's you intend to clean a new and high polished surface, it's better to get a special cleaning cloth to avoid those micro scratches on your jewelry.
