    Does that mean youíll never clean your kilt accessories, buckles etc?
    Most interesting. A basic question results in different views. I guess it depends upon your particular view point. Mine was that people acquire an item due to its looks at the time of acquisition and probably wish to maintain that pleasing initial picture. I must admit I err to the wash it to get rid of any dirt and then use of a specialised cloth, avoiding harsh chemicals. I think I know now what I will go for. Thanks as ever for your views.

    I think that’s all it should need. If it’s washed occasionally and is kept fresh then a light cloth occasionally to remove any light tarnish should be sufficient. Dennis once suggested the anti tarnish tabs and I use those in the box which work really well

    Ok you got me! I polish the sporran chain, buckle and pin just get a wipe over over with a treated cloth, but they are Argentium and do not require much. Things like artificially added black spots I would polish off.
