I like to use toothpaste (I've used the "gel" kind also) and a toothbrush, but a soft cloth works well too.

    For all of us whom also own all the silver ware that goes with our beautiful sterling silver sets, I have found the fastest easiest way to clean all in no time at all. Want know uh...well I read it some where so my turn to pass it along. Put aluminum foil down in sink then boiling water.lay out enough sliver ware to cover the bopttom but not over lap each other.Wait for about half hour go back drain water and wipe each piece dry and shine shine shine. Hope this helps and if I am wrong about this feel free to let me know , please.
