Polishing cloths


#1

For decades I have used the red rouge cloths with the two layers
(one red, one yellow). How do these compare to the Sunshine cloths?

I think Sunshine cloths may be a bit better, but I prefer Goddard’s
Long Shine cloths to those, and Pro Polish Pads to any of them.
Goddard’s cloths are a hardware store item, and Pro Polish pads are
little white squares sold by Rio and others for 50 for under $10
last timer I got them.

With them, I can refresh the shine on my whole inventory with just a
couple. Also, I have found that I can, for example, bring up a high
shine on a hammered silver ring after soldering on a setting, with
little effort and without dulling the crispness of the hammer marks.

classsic rouge cloths give a slightly higher polish sometimes, but
are more prone to scratching if they get even slightly dirty, are
also messier to use, and a bit slower. The sunshine cloths are
easier, faster, and cleaner to use, though they may give you a
slightly less degree of high polish. It’s a slight difference that
most won’t notice. Personally, I prefer the sunshine cloths.

Have you ever tried the ultra cloth which Stuller carries?

I have to chime in, the ultra cloth is terrific.

Are those the yellow ones cut with pinking shears? If so, they’re the
best, IMO.

They yellow ones may be Sunshine cloths. The blue is from Eurotool.

Who sells Ultra Cloths other than Stuller? I don’t have access to
their catalogue without an account…
