    Hi,

    I just have a quick question. Does brushed silver hold up better to finger prints than polished?

    Thanks

    Brushed won't show fingerprints as much as the polished finish.

    If you sweat a lot the brushed can turn a yellowish color and won't come off. K.O. at Brass Spa told me this when I asked the same question.

    Wipe the horn down before putting it back in the case and everything will be fine. It is kind of like the reason we keep rolls of toilet paper in the loo. If you do what you should when you should, you won't have to when you HAVE to!

    A soft cloth and a bit of TLC turns an issue into a no-brainer.
