Hi!
I have pulled out a lace project that has been on the needles for awhile and found that my addi lace needles have tarnished . Has anyone had that problem?? If so, what
have you used to clean them?
Thank you. My apologies if this has been discussed. If you can direct me to another thread that would be grand.

Are they the gold colored ones? I'm guessing they are, since the nickel-plated interchangeable lace needles shouldn't tarnish. I have a few of the brass ones and I have used a microfiber cloth to wipe them. It takes more than one swipe, but it has worked for me. Hope that or something else works for you.

Thank you for the recommendation. Yes, they are the gold colored ones. I never even thought of them discoloring. Will try jewelry cloth on them.
Hmm....I have recently learned that I am allergic to nickel...so now I need to be careful of needles I use. I thought it only meant that I had to buy good jewelry..heehee

Thank you for the help!

I was visiting my SIL and brother when I had the Addi lace tarnish issue. I found Norwex Cleaning Paste under their sink, gave it a try, and IMMEDIATELY asked where I could get some! It worked just great, better than anything else I'd used in the past.

It's not cheap, but you use so little, that this one container would last me a lifetime.

I bought a lot of their products to use to clean my new kitchen, I just love their products!
