Quick Fix

I'm in a rush this morning, and look at my silver bracelet! Yikes! Ugly! Tarnished!
My quick fix -- so far, any brand I've used works just fine. A little dab will do ya! Spread it all over your fingers and mush it around the bracelet (don't mush it on the digital camera!) Rinse and voila!

Hey now, I am a dental hygienist. I will have to remember this trick and advise my patients of another use for toothpaste, especially when I tell them they really don't need it to brush their teeth with.

Well, isn't that interesting! Thanks for the tip. I think I'll go try it right now!

WOW, I'm going right now and see if the brand I use will work on my Pandora Bracelets they look a mess! If not I'm buying your brand tomorrow when I make my Wal-Mart run.

This does work great - I've done it for years. One caveat - if you have silver jewelry with "antiquing", for lack of a better word, that decorative oxidizing that is done on parts of the design to highlight it, this will take the oxidizing off too, so be careful. I had some Mexican silver rings that the toothpaste cleaned a little TOO well!

Lovely bracelet! I love your quilt in the last post- fab quilting!

I, too, have done this for years. Like Jan said, be careful on the decorative black 'antiquing'. Yes it will take it off.

Great tip on the toothpaste. I used to shy away from silver, but now I keep it in a Silver Safekeeper and it doesn't tarnish.
It is similar to this one
