    @Jeanine Wester when I am concerned about abrasiveness, I usually use a market product like Twinkle or Hagerty silver care.

    This method was a chemical experiment in school 54 years ago! We thought it was really cool!

    I am so glad you posted this. I have an old silver set from my mom that has been wrapped in newpaper for years! I took them all out and cleaned them this way and they sparkle! I did wash them in the dishwasher afterward so we could use them for eating. So pretty! THANKS SO MUCH!

    I use tooth paste, you can get the dollar store brand. But it must be the white paste not the gel. Best part is that it is not abrasive. Have been doing this for years, put a small amount (like a dab) on a soft cloth or old t-shirt that you no longer use and clean your jewelry with it too. You will see right away how all the dirt and grim comes off and is on the cloth and your silver item is all nice and shiny once again like new.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
