Tuesday Tip Day – Toothpowder for Cleaning Silver

Goodbye nasty cleaning detergents. If you have some gorgeous silver jewelry that’s starting to dull or coins that are tarnished, use toothpowder to brighten ’em up again.

  • Put 4-5 spoons of toothpowder in a bowl.
  • Use an old toothbrush to gently rub the powder against your silver.
  • Do this for a few mins (or leave for 30 mins for more stubborn stains) and gently wipe off using a damp cloth and let dry.
  • You will a notice a difference in the sheen of the silver. Repeat as required.

You can also use toothpaste which is easier to come by. Just use an old brush to rub it over your item and leave for 2-3 hours and rinse off.
