    Pros: Absolutely nothing. Zippo. Nada.
    Cons: Tarn-X must have either gasoline or battery acid or PCP in it.

    Summary: About 13 years ago my late mother gave me this nice brass gold-colored retro-50s starburst fireplace screen as a housewarming gift. After a few years it started to dull and fade; so, I decided to try Tarn-X in order to give it a new sheen. I figured ... read more

    Pros: None!
    Cons: Not biodegradable, toxic, smells awful, must wear gloves, damages human tissue... ugh!

    Summary: I have a set of silverplate that was a wedding gift to my parents in 1967 - my mother gave it to me when I went off to college.  We had never used it because it was "nice" silverware and we mostly used stainless steel flatware.  For years, this ... read more

    Pros: DID WIPE ON, DID SHINE
    Cons: EXPENSIVE. SHINEY, FOR ONLY A FEW MOMENTS. CARCINOGENIC!

    Summary: I used this product for my brass and silver. After wiping each piece (8-brass and 20 - silver) I with the product. I used good old fashioned elbow grease and stroked each piece for all I was worth. I finally got the bight shiney results but no thanks to ... read more

    Pros: works really well and extremely easily, works on copper too!
    Cons: terrible smell if the silver is banged up you might still need to polish

    Summary: basically a kind of Thiourea. This is a really great product, it stinks to high heaven but boy does it work. One thing to keep in mind is that this takes care of tarnish, if you have lots of scratches and a dull finish to your silver afterwards you ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Wright's Silver Cream did what Tarn-X did not.

    Summary: Basic use of Tarn-X did not work. Failed its intended purpose. I used Tarn-X on a simple silver bowl with some tarnish. It did NOTHING. Nothing at all. So, then I used Wright's Silver Cream and that worked beautifully. I'll be seeking my money back on ... read more
