I'm wondering if anyone has stumbled upon a good alternative to
commercial detergents for barrel tumbling. I polish my gold and
silver in a rotary tumbler with steel shot. Some commercial
detergents don't work well for me. I've found that
"gesswein"works best for me but it is expensive and the mail
order wait is inconvenient. Question; Is there a common
detergent...Tide, Cheer,etc that will magically do the same job?
"Whiter silvers..Golder golds?"
