After a heads-up from Ukko, I looked further into this idea of using toothpaste. There appears to be two camps of people, the pro-toothpaste people and anti-toothpaste people when it comes to using it to clean silver. Some people love it, some hate it. The biggest worry appears to be the abrasives in toothpaste, which can mar the surface of the silver. It's also suggested that it may speed up retarnishing. Most anti-toothpaste people suggest using the relatively cheap silver buffing cloths. I suggest that you search the internet for more information if you're are concerned, but due to the debate still going on in this area, I felt compelled to add this information. -- Ed.
