*All of these hacks are using regular paste toothpaste, not gel.


Rinse off the toothpaste and the tarnish is gone.

Silver -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff tarnish off silver.

Rinse off the toothpaste and the tarnish is gone. This also works to polish chrome as well.

Copper -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff tarnish off copper.

Clean phone screens, CDs, DVDs, etc. -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff the screen, CD, or DVD.

Use a damp cloth to clean the toothpaste off and your screen is clean. You can rinse CDs and DVDs under the faucet, then use a cotton cloth to lightly dry them.

Remove Odor From Plastic -


Rinse your plastic out.

Rub the inside of the plastic with the toothpaste. This works great to remove strong smells like onions as well.

Rinse out the toothpaste and wash. The odor will be gone.

Remove Crayon -


Place some regular toothpaste on a microfiber cloth and buff the crayon away from doors, tables, and walls. Wipe off the toothpaste with a damp cloth.

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

      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.
