- Coat the product nicely with the tooth powder and start rubbing it with the tooth brush, you will see the tarnish getting off. Be patient while doing so and don’t do it vigorously as the you wouldn’t want anything to break.
- When you’ve rubbed it thoroughly and nicely and the tarnish is almost gone, clean it with a cotton cloth.

Furthermore, your silver might not value as that of gold but still needs to last long and be equally valued. You can prevent the tarnishing at early stages by not replacing the packaging your silver was bought in. It is an anti-tarnish bag the vendors give away in; so let your silver be in that very packaging only.
Add a little piece of chalk in it for it to last long and give the radiance as ever. In cases of jewelry, always wear your jewellery after you’re done wearing your perfume. The fragrant spirits will make your silver short lived.
