Hi Tina, here's a link that should be of help
Hi Tina: Rub toothpaste onto the tarnished silver using a dry microfiber cloth. then gently clean detailed areas of silverware with a toothbrush instead of the cloth. Rinse the silver under warm water until none of the toothpaste remains and wipe the items dry with a clean microfiber cloth. Here's a site that shows how to clean heavily tarnished silver:
Here is an idea:
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.
I tried coke a cola!!
it worked on a very badly tarnished teapot.💕🇨🇦
Soak it for a bit.
Hi Tina - This is the most effective and all-natural silver cleaning and polishing method that we use. It's also been featured by Hometalk. Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly

Here's another way, just be certain that it's really silver and not silver plated.
