Cleaning Silver?

3075 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  RadHenry09
My fiance bought me a headstall and breastcollar set second hand for pretty cheap. It's been sitting for a while and the silver is tarnished and the leather got moldy :(. I have leather cleaner so I can wipe the mold off and then use the leather stuff. But what do you suggest for cleaning the silver?

With the saddle, my husband used blue painter's tape around the conchos to keep the cleaner off the leather. I don't know what damage it would have caused, but the tape came off easily and didn't leave any residue.
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.
