View Full Version : Oxidised metal on pens

You know the problem - you leave your good pens in a corner unused and after awhile, the metal loses its shine and have a harsh feel to it. I guess it's caused by moisture and oxygen.
Anyone knows how best to get the shine back? I have quite a number of good pens that have this problem.
Polish it with any good car polish/wax or use Autosol.

You can use toothpaste to polish the tarnish pens to its original condition. :)

Dip in Coke or Pepsi to remove the harsh spots then polish and coat with a layer of protective wax.

Thanls, all for the suggestion. Will try each one and let you all know. But don't hold your breath - I can procrastinate - I'm famous for that.
