This cloth is one of the best things out there for cleaning silver plated or solid silver instruments. It's able to clean all of the dirt and grime off of the instrument as well as polishing it. Relatively cheap price makes it almost necessary to buy one for every instrument you own! This is the most useful cloth I've ever had and it's helpful whenever you're in a marching ensemble and you have to constantly clean your horn. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.
