What do I need to polish my silver?


How do I polish my silver?

  1. Apply a thin coat of the water-based polish directly onto your silver, covering the entirety of your silver plate, jewelry, utensils, etc.
  2. You can then let it sit for 5 minutes to penetrate tough tarnish or use your microfiber cloth to polish your silver right away. 
  3. Utilize the microfiber cloth to rub away the built up tarnish.
  4. If there are hard to reach corners or divots that the microfiber cloth is unable to reach, it is recommended that you use a soft toothbrush. Handle with care.
