I have some old silver jewlery I would like to clean.

Go to your nearby jewelry store, and ask them if they sell a silver cleaning cloth. I clean ALL my silver that way.

Yes, it does. And a Native American told me to keep the solid silver items in a plastic bag to keep the air away, for the most part, when you are not wearing the item. Also, if you wear it all the time, it will not get that way. I have a favorite bracelet the man made for me and it is true if it is worn all the time. He was/is a wonderful silversmith. Otherwise, it's in the plastic bag and if it does need cleaning the soft rag and toothpaste works great

Needs to be white toothpaste, not gel... and make sure there are no soft stones. They can be ruined. I used that or baking soda and a toothbrush.
