I would suggest you switch to using a creamy type of silver polish because it is less harsh on the silver or nickel mounts. if you get some on the wood or ivory, just use some warm water and a clean soft cloth to wipe it off after you are done. It won't harm the wood or the ivory. Use a soft jewelers cloth in between to keep it clean. A good jewelry store could provide you with one. There is a cleaning cloth made by Harris reeds that is good for "inbetween" cleaning of silver. It works pretty good too.

I use Brasso wadding rather than the liquid.

I use Tarn - X liquid ....mainly because I want to cause the least amount of abrasion to the silver/nickel as possible. My Hardies are nickel plated...and there are spots where the nickel has all worn off (they were '4th or 5th hand' when I got them). I tend to be a wee bit picky when it comes to my pipes.

Tarn - X is only good for tarnish though...won't do anything for rust.

How about WD-40? It's supposed to be good for cleaning everything.

Seriously, we're quite restricted here in Chile as to what is available to us. I've seen a couple of Brasso pastes, one for brass and one for silver, but nothing else.

I think he meant tarnish, not actual rust.

Connoisseur Jewelry Wipes work very well to remove tarnish, and because they're dry, there's no chance of spilling over onto the wood.
