Cleaning/Shining dull spoons? ex. swedish pimples
« on: Dec 07, 2016, 11:42 AM »
Wondering if anyone ever cleans up their dull spoons to increase the flash? I thought I found a video a year or so ago about this, just curious what you guys use? CLR, coca cola? :tipup:

Tripple odd steel wool to knock rust off of crome. Or use eagle 1 crome polish.. it is in a can stinks like crazy but really shines the crome.. it not s paste or wax it is a chemical that really works.. to shine Chrome with a wipe of a rag and use another clean rag to buff it to a high shine..

x2  :thumbsup:

Not only shines a charm but leaves a bit of light "wax" to inhibit future tarnish.

Or a trick I picked up from the Old Man: A bit of ash, wetted and rubbed with your fingers on the tarnished metal will do a serviceable field job. Cigarette (him) or cigar (me) works.

Close enough chilly ~ just tryin' to clarify in my own mind, which I seem to have lost.    :roflmao:

Anyone ever notice a reduction in effectiveness after applying cleaners?

They sell an awful lots of baits with fancy scent attractant, I was always hesitant to apply any type of chemical for fear that fish might be detoured by the scent of the residue...
