Silver jewellery is less likely to tarnish than gold ones. Jewellery made of silver is easier to clean than other metals. Cleaning silver jewellery doesn't have to take a lot of time or effort. Thankfully, you can return your silver objects to their former glory using the methods below.

Clean Silver Jewellery: What's the Best Way to Do It? 

For many people, silver jewellery is a fashion statement and a way to boost their self-confidence. Silver jewellery can be cleaned in the shortest amount of time using dish soap, baby shampoo, and warm water. Gold jewellery can be cleaned using these methods as well.

Mix a few drops of dish soap into a small bowl of warm water (or baby shampoo). Then, use warm water to clean the silver jewellery. Then, use a toothbrush to clean it.

Clean your jewellery carefully with a silver cloth or a microfiber towel to eliminate tarnish. If this method isn’t enough for you, we have several options you can try.

Sterling Silver Jewellery Cleaning 

Most people wear sterling silver jewellery because of its exceptional quality. Sterling silver jewellery isn't made of pure silver like gold jewellery. Instead, it has about 7.5% copper in it. If only silver were used in the jewellery, it would not endure as long.

An imprint such as "STERLING 9.25" or "STERLING 9.25" will typically be found on the clasp. Unless it bears one of these hallmarks, it's probably a fake or, at most, silver-plated.

The dishwasher can clean silver jewellery with dish soap and warm water. If that doesn't work, you may always use baking soda and other everyday household items. 

Citrus Juice with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Combine 1 tsp. olive oil and 1/2 cup lemon juice in a small bowl. Dip a clean cloth in the solution and use it to wipe the surface. Rub the silver jewellery with a soft cloth and a little mixture until it sparkles. After that, use a silver cloth or a microfiber towel to dry the jewellery. 

Baking Soda as a Cleaner

Using a 2:1 mixture of baking soda and warm water, create a paste. Baking soda is used in a 2:1 ratio with water. After mixing, apply the paste to the jewellery with a light touch. To get rid of the tarnish, let it dry out. Using a silver cloth and a microfiber towel, remove any residue from the jewellery and allow it to air dry. You can substitute cornstarch for baking soda if you don't have it. 

Toothpaste for Jewellery Cleaning

Toothpaste is another household item you can use to remove tarnish from silver jewellery. To begin, gently scrub the silver jewellery using a soft-bristle brush and a tiny amount of diluted toothpaste.

Also, avoid using whitening toothpaste because it will exacerbate the problem. Remember to stay away from silver-plated jewellery when using this procedure. It can cause skin irritation and allergies, among other things, due to the chemical interactions it creates. 


Taking care of your silver jewellery and accessories is essential to keep them looking their best. Regular cleaning and polishing will help maintain the metal's natural lustre and prevent tarnishing.

When storing silver jewellery, it is best to keep it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. An airtight container or ziplock bag can help to protect silver jewellery from the elements.
