That is an excellent tip!
I use a regular paste silver polish Wright's Silver Cream, I think I got it at Walmart. Try a toothbrush to get it in and out of the crevices
I have gotten the Wright's on the leather and it did no harm, but I'd use the painters tape just to be safe.

I have just wiped it off with a towel but yeah the painters tape is an excellent tip , I havent noticed anything happening to the leather but just to be on the safe side it wouldnt hurt. I also use a toothbrush to get into the little cracks, then wipe it with a paper towel/soft cloth to buff it out. It really shines : )

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
