If your chain is truly silver, use a good quality silver cream such as Gorham's. Follow the directions. Alternatively, see if your local jeweler will clean it for you for less than the cost of a jar of Gorham's.

I use a rouge cloth on it. I also bought a gray and white cloth pretty much the same idea as a rouge cloth. Anytime I wear a chain I just run it thru the cloth several times. Lovely.

I bought a bottle of Tarnex years ago and use it to clean all of my sterling silver including jewelry. One bottle will last a really long time. It smells a little while the tarnish is dissolving but it works in practically an instant.

I always use toothpaste, not the gel kind.

White toothpaste works OK but I just tried rubbing my rope chain with aluminum foil and it worked much faster.

The tinfoil and baking soda worked like a charm. Thank you

How do you clean a silver chain? I have been told that vinegar can get it clean.
