    Does toothpaste take off anything from ur sterling silver aside from the tarnish?

      Hi Juliet. I’ve only had the tarnish come off and nothing else

      Just the tarnish.


      I sell a lot of silver on Ebay. Jewelry, silverware, serving sets. Silver polish like Wrights and dips like TarnX tend to remove some of the metal. The foil method doesn't work that great and still leaves a grey film that still needs to be removed. I use white toothpaste (not gel) and a damp toothbrush. For large items I use a damp cloth. Also works on copper, brass, gold, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything.

    How can you remove a black permanent marker from a vinyl sofa

      I would try using rubbing alcohol first. Place the alcohol onto a cloth and rub lightly at the vinyl. Always test in an inconspicuous spot first.

      Try going over it with a dry erase marker. It usually lifts the permanent marker, wipe it with paper towels, then clean it with hand sanitizer on a towel.
