Wright's Silver Polish Review: Cream Was OK But I Like My Natural Method Better
Jesse shared her review of Wright's silver polish, also known as silver cream, and what she likes to use now, in the alternative.
I have used this product on silver salt shakers, bowls, creamers, serving trays and silverware.
I polish items whenever needed, or when they look very dingy. I have mine on display in a glass cabinet in my home, and so when they get tarnished I like to help them look better right away.
I used this product for years, but I gave it up when I decided to be more "green".
I didn't like the chemicals in it, or the way it left my hands almost painfully dry - sometimes even when I wore latex gloves! I never could find a list of ingredients so I don't know what it really contains it.
The product worked when I used it, but so does the method I use now, which requires only aluminum foil, salt and water to remove tarnish.
This product is not very expensive, about $5-6 on average from the grocery store and there are coupons around from time to time. I would give it a 3 out of 5 star rating.
I thought it was a decent product, but didn't enjoy the harsh chemicals in it - especially when using such chemicals isn't at all necessary to clean silver.
Thanks so much Jesse for sharing your Wright's silver polish review.
I noticed, when researching the product, that they actually have two versions available. The first is the Wright's silver cream that you reviewed.
The other is called "Wright's Anti-Tarnish silver polish" and it says it not only cleans and polishes the silver, but creates an "invisible wax-like surface that actually slows the formation of tarnish."
I would be interested in hearing from even more people who have used either of these silver polishes, to share what they think of them. Wright's brand is actually one of the oldest brands still available. You can share your silver polish review here, for this or any other brand, telling me what you like (or dislike) about it, and why. In addition, you can read other reviews for other brands that have already been submitted.
***Update: As I did more research on this product I found out that Wright's silver cream and Weiman's silver cream and polish are actually the same product. Apparently, they label it as both names, but I think the Wright name is more popular, and that is what more people know it as. Therefore, if you've tried any of Weiman's products also, such as the silver wipes, please share your reviews with me about these too.***
In addition, the newer "greener" method for cleaning silver that you mention sounds very similar to the recipe I have on this site for homemade silver cleaner, which also uses water and aluminum foil, but substitutes cream of tartar for the salt.
If any other readers would like to share their silver cleaner homemade recipes here, I'd love to hear them. There are several variations of the aluminum foil cleaning method, plus I'm sure there are even more home remedies.
