Why buy expensive jewelry cleaner for my tarnished silver pieces? Now I use white toothpaste with an old used toothbrush. Give it a few swirls inside the crannies, and my silver jewelry now sparkles as if I got it professionally cleaned.

Don't do it very often as the toothpaste contains abrasives. If the settings are tight just soaking them is a dish of water with a few drops of vinegar and dish soap does a great job.
I misread, you are doing silverware. Same with it. The silver coating is likely very thin. I used to have to clean my parent's silverware and I used the aluminum foil method for removing tarnish then rinsing in vinegar water.
