Cleaning and Polishing Silver, Part 11

by Steven Ferry

This is the second article in a row that is not from Mr. Herman himself, but examples of the magic his proprietary silver polish worked on some silver we own. In this case, it was a box of silverware, a tea set manufactured in England exactly 100 years ago—and it looked like it had not been cleaned in as long, because it was a family heirloom that had languished in the attic.



That’s when I whipped out Mr. Jeff Herman’s silver polish, of which we have written about in the past.


Twenty minutes later, and you can see the result: Gentle but effective—we would like to recommend this product once more!
