I turned my tech black :(
I recieved my 54' Superspeed today, and it wasn't exactly as clean and shiny as I expected, so I went looking for those soap bubbles that everyone talks about, couldn't find them anywhere so I bought some "Vim" powder, which is meant to clean anything and everything, and a bottle of "Silvo", a silver/chrome cleaner lotion.
Before I got to use the silvo, I put some tin foil in a pot and put in a few tablespoons of Vim and some salt and some washing up liquid and let it boil for about 5 minutes then left it to soak for an hour. WHen I emptied out the concoction, the Superspeed came out "kind of" ok, but my Tech, which was actually quite shiny when i started out, came out almost black. I then packed them both with whitening toothpaste and gave them a scrub,( which helped a bit) before doing the silvo polishing.
The superspeed came out well enough, not blinding bright shiny, although ok, but the tech!! while it did improve, is no-were near as shiny as it was before I started. Had a shave with the superspeed though, one of the best shaves I ever had, with my lovely new TOBS sandlewood, so the night was not a total loss, but I am dissapointed about my tech :(
I was thinking as a last resort of bringing them to a jewellers to be cleaned, but would rather try it myself first. I think the tech may be a different material than the ss.
Any advice greatly appreciated guys, thanks
