The Sorcerer's Apprentice

very random question

Hello, I just got to wondering what the best thing to use to polish an all siver flute is. When I bought my flute the store gave me a plain old silver polishing cloth; however, it doesn't seem to really do its job. Any suggestions?

I too had this problem except it happend most during marching band. I went to a pharmacy and bought clear, odorless roll on deodorent. It seemed to help and would be cheaper than getting the flute engraved.

I have been playing for about 5 years and have read many other posts about this. I know that I must relax my embroshure and keep a small air stream. I h...
