Silver jewellery clean with toothpaste

In the case of delicate chains or elaborately crafted pieces, however, we may not get all parts polished. Nevertheless, this method is quick and definitely worth a try! Buy a well-rated cloth here.
Home remedy: potato
Cut a raw potato in half and rub one of them over your jewellery. This cleaning method is best for solid silver jewellery.
Clean the silver with aluminium foil and salt
Important: This cleaning method is only suitable for silver jewellery without gemstones. Embedded stones could be irreversibly damaged. In addition, the method should only be used on heavily soiled silver.
Grab a small bowl, line it with some aluminium foil and put the jewellery inside. Now add a teaspoon of salt and hot water. Wait 2 to 3 minutes and then rinse everything with clean cold water. Now put the jewellery on a soft cloth and let it dry. The silver now shines in a new shine!
If an unpleasant smell of sulphur sets in during this time, this is due to the chemical reaction between the aluminium foil and the silver. Therefore ventilate sufficiently!
