Daily Wire Tip Oct. 11: When to Let Go of a Cleaning Cloth
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
October 11, 2010
I purchased a cleaning/polishing cloth, and it’s worked terrific. Now it’s quite dirty. The directions said it had some sort of chemicals on it. Can I wash it in the wash machine or by hand? Or do I need to buy a new one?

Sorry, Catherine, you cannot wash a polishing cloth and expect it to work, as washing will remove the polishing compounds in the cloth.
To learn more about different polishing cloths, please enjoy this video clip, Using a Polishing Cloth, with WS Faculty members Mary Bailey and Sherrie Lingerfelt.
The best solution is to use a polishing cloth until it is totally black, then throw it away and get a new one.
