My apologies if I mis-worded my post in some fashion. I just was hoping to gain some clarity in a place where I felt I might get an accurate answer on a question that research online wasn't really providing me in a way that I felt confident about, no harm was meant or intended!
I wasn't saying that you said anything or even made any sort of claim I was merely asking if what I heard was a myth or not - and if there was any removal of the metal during it's use.
My understanding (mind you I am VERY new to all of this!) is that the only known method for polishing that I've heard (note the heard - I'm new and so much of my learning comes from the internet - which pretty much means that some - or much - of what I'm going to run across is absolute hogwash or will be just the uninformed video taping themselves to inform the uninformed lol) that doesn't allegedly remove any metal is the aluminum foil method.
Again, I have NO idea if that claim is ridiculous or not, so I just figured that I would ask. I will likely be asking lots of questions because this is in my blood and I will learn every bit of it that I can manage to shove into my head. LOL.
