I usually tend to throw away my tarnished artificial jewelry because cleaning it is too much effort for the price of the actual item, however, this choker necklace I purchased from Shein.com tarnished so quickly and was so perfect for my style that I decided to give some DIY tips a shot.
So I used a trick I found on YouTube which is so simple yet so effective! I took a bit of toothpaste (I used Glister toothpaste from Amway but I think you can use any white toothpaste) and rubbed it vigorously throughout the length of the necklace – you can use a brush or your fingers for this step. Then I rinsed the necklace with plain water and patted it try. Although the polish of the necklace is still not as bright as it was when it was brand new, most of the dark discoloration has vanished and I can definitely use this necklace again.
So here is the final result-
I’m not sure if the picture does justice to the final outcome but most of the dullness and dark deposit is completely gone! So if you have some tarnished jewelry in your stash that you are not willing to part with, do give it a good rub with some good old toothpaste!
