Silver and Bleach-oops

I was cleaning with bleach and forgot to take my ring off. It is all silver. Now it has turned like a dark, almost black color. I have washed it, washed my hands with it, etc.. and some has come off, but I am scared that maybe I accidently ruined it. Is there anything I can soak it in, or clean it with that will safely make it back to silver again?

  • Try using silver cleaner, and or toothpaste like the others said. I also remember my Grandma using lemon juice the real thing not the imitation kind.

  • Not sure on what to clean it with but if you can't get it clean you can take your ring to the jewlers and have them re-coat your ring with another top layer of silver or gold. This isn't expensive at all. I re-coated a ring with 14k gold and it was only $20.00 dollars
