Frequently asked questions about Ecology Polishing Pads
Why do I want jewelry cleaner in a solid form rather than a liquid?
cleaners are inconvenient. Most people don't want to put on rubber gloves and mix a chemical based liquid on a daily basis just so
the jewelry they have chosen to wear that day looks good. Generally liquid cleaners are highly abrasive and cannot be used on your
delicate jewelry that contains pearls or opals. Ecology Polishing Pads safely polish gold, silver, and any other metal.
are Ecology Polishing Pads different from regular polishing cloths?
Ecology Polishing Pads have no chemicals in their composition. Unlike
polishing cloths that lose effectiveness when exposed to air, our pads do not dry out. Technically they will last forever. They have
no known shelf life. The Ecology Polishing Pads you buy today will work just as well one or two years later. Our polishing pads contain
no toxic chemicals so they are safe to use around children or pets and highly effecitve for polishing silver and all other metal types.*Please note, while our pads do not release toxic chemicals, they should still be kept out of reach of children and pets who may try
and consume them. These pads are not safe for human consumption.

in 2"x 2" sizes. These smaller Ecology Polishing Pads are called advertising squares and are used as gifts by corporations and jewelry
stores to say thank you to their customers, and are used extensively in direct mail campaigns.
Are Ecology Polishing Pads
used only on gold and sterling silver jewelry?
No. People use Ecology Polishing Pads to polish precious and semi-precious stones,
pearls, watches, chrome, silverware, titanium, and guns. They can polish aluminum wheels, polish tools, and virtually any other metal.
In addition, many collectors use them to polish ceramic in their fine collections. Enthusiastic customers constantly inform us of
new uses they have found for Ecology Polishing Pads such as oxidation removal on virtually every surface.
Can I use Ecology
Polishing Pads on coins?
When it comes to polishing coins, especially collector coins, you should not use Ecology Polishing
Pads. Make sure you check with a Numismatologist before you polish any collector coins.
Can I use Ecology Polishing Pads
on my costume jewelry?
Yes, quality costume jewelry polishes up nicely with Ecology Polishing Pads. There are no chemicals in
Ecology Polishing Pads. Therefore, there is nothing to dissolve the adhesive in most costume jewelry. However, it is not recommended
for use on very inexpensive costume jewelry as it may affect the finish. Once you begin using our polishing pads be prepared for them
to become your new favorite home jewelry cleaner!
