You don't have to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth to appreciate the elegance of polished silver—and with a little elbow grease, yours can be spiffed and sparkling in no time. To complete this How-To you will need: A sink or a basin of warm water A soft, clean cloth Non-abrasive silver cleaning paste An old, natural-bristle toothbrush Step 1: Read directions Read the silver cleaner's packaging and follow those directions if they vary from these. Step 2: Rinse silver Rinse the silver item in warm water. Step 3: Spread paste Put a dab of silver cleaning paste onto a soft cloth and spread it over the surface of the item. Tip: If the item is large, polish it in sections. Step 4: Don't overpolish Rub the silver just until tarnish disappears—don't overpolish or you'll remove the item's finish. Tip: Clean the hard-to-reach places with an old natural-bristle toothbrush and a little cleaning paste. Step 5: Rinse silver again Rinse the silver in warm water again. Step 6: Dry item Dry your shiny silver item thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Thanks for watching How To Clean Silver!
