    Have recently got an 8x39w dimmable sun power unit and the reflectors it came with could use some polishing. Already wiped them down with RO water and only removed some of the 'salt stains'. On the ATI site it states that they are silver coated, so would it be safe to use some silver polish used on silverware?

    The staining is not the end of the world, but they are nearly as clean and shiny as I want.

    Thanks

    I have used polish made to clean sinks , the Franke brand is particularly good called "Inox Cream".
