Don't see how using TarnX (which actually reverts the tarnish to 
metal without removing any) is making things complicated (nor 
expensive, or messy, or dangerous -- as long as you don't use it in 
California), but thanks for that perspective.  And no, I don't have 
any pencils on the premises (but TarnX and paste silver polish are 
both readily to hand).

Best regards,
