Use tooth paste to clean silverware.

This is a little similar but......

Take a piece of aluminum foil and put in the bottom of the sink (enough to cover most of the bottom), then pour 1 T. of regular Baking Soda (Arm & Hammer works well) over it and pour boiling hot water into the sink. Mix water and soda lightly with a wood spoon and then place your silverware in there - the tarnish comes off after about an hour or two of soaking, making it look brand new..

Place an aluminium foil in recepient sink etc add 2 spoons of kitchen salt in hot water and then immerse cutlery..

Rub your silverware with a paste made of wood ash and water, rinse and dry..

Another way to clean silverware(I asume you are talking about real silver) is to use a chamos cloth. They can be found at any instrument/music store and are cheap..

On a show the other day the host used toothpaste and a good brand of paper towel.
Rub toothpaste onto silverware with one lot of paper towel and using a fresh lot polish it off, that's it and it worked when he did it, l suppose you would use a toothbrush to get into any crevices or hard to get to place.
