Silver polishing tip

Super-quick post:

With my wire-work, and the delicate-looking chains that I use, polishing cloths just don't work, as they can't get the tarnish from between the twists of wire or at the joint of the chain links. Since I use so many pearls, dipping solutions aren't an option either.

So here's my 10-second silver polishing trick - baking soda toothpaste and a toddler's extra soft toothbrush.

A miniscule dab of toothpaste and a few swishes and brushes in the palm of my hand, followed by a good rinse and being set between paper towels to dry, and the piece is as shiny as shiny can be.

Great tip. I use toothpaste to polish/clean my wedding rings even. Didn't know it would work on silver, too.
