I haven't tried this, so I'm not rating it. I just want to pass on a tip for even easier silver polish that's really handy if you just want to polish up a pair of earrings before you put them on: Put a dab of paste-style (not gel) TOOTHPSTE on your finger and rub the silver. Rinse clean with water. You won't believe how great the silver will look!
