3 DIY Silver Cleaning Hacks

If you don’t have silver polish on hand and you need to brighten silver ASAP, try one of the DIY methods below. Just know that these treatments won’t keep tarnish from returning, and silver experts caution against using them too often (if at all) so use them, especially the toothpaste trick, for emergency spruce-ups only. For silver-plated jewelry, avoid excessive rubbing to keep from wearing away the metal finish.

  • Use dish soap: Mix a few drops of dish liquid, like Dawn, with warm water. Dip a soft cloth in the solution and rub the silver to remove the tarnish. Rinse with cool water and buff dry with another soft cloth.
  • Try baking soda: For heavier tarnish, mix three parts baking soda to one part water. Wet the silver and apply the paste with a soft, lint-free cloth. Work it into the crevices and turn the cloth as it picks up the tarnish. Rinse well and buff dry.
  • Reach for toothpaste: In the same way mild abrasives in toothpaste remove stains from your teeth, they can also remove tarnish from silver. Apply a tiny dab of white paste toothpaste (not gel) to your finger or a soft cloth and very gently rub it on the tarnished silver. Then, rinse well with warm water and buff to a shine with a soft cloth.

Silver is another popular choice for jewelry. It’s often less expensive than gold, but still has a beautiful shine. Silver is usually derived from other metal ores, and it is sometimes found in a pure and natural form too.

It’s a very popular choice for rings, bracelets and necklaces. One thing to note about silver is that it can tarnish over time if it’s not cared for properly. This means that you will need to take care of your silver jewelry by storing it in a dry place and keeping it away. Yet this is also one of the benefits of silver. It is easy to care for, and you can regularly add more shine to your silver jewelry by simply using a polishing cloth to keep it shining like new. Silver is a good choice if you’re looking for something that will last over time.
