Polishing Cloth with Rouge

This is a two-sided polishing cloth. One side is coated with polishing rouge, and the other side is treated with a metal polish. This cloth is especially good for polishing gold jewelry.

Note: Not to be used for plated items, because it can rub the finish off.

Step 1
Rub the metal with the rouge side first.
Step 2
Flip the cloth over, then polish and buff the metal with the yellow side to complete polishing.
