Which Silver Polish to USe

Following last month’s article, I provide a list on my website of the many products on the market today for polishing silver. Some are excellent and extremely mild, some are slightly more abrasive. Then there are those that are so abrasive, they act more like sand paper!

And let’s not forget the dips that may appear to be harmless, but actually strip away precious metal and patina.

Take a look at my Silver Polish Abrasion Ratings page to discover if you’re caring properly for your employer’s silver or possibly destroying it.

I’m more-than-happy to answer any questions.
