I bought my Damier speedy a couple of weeks ago and the lock that came with it was horribly tarnished. It was VERY dark in color with some black spots. One of the members on here recommended cleaning it with a polishing cloth. So, I tried it and it looks NEW!!!!! I used Tiffany's silver polishing cloth and it turned all black by the time I was done. So, anyone who has tarnished hardware, try using Tiffany's polishing cloth. You can get it at any Tiffany & CO store and it costs either $5 or $10 (depending on the size of the cloth) Just thought I'd share with you!
