yeah...I wasn't going to respond to this thread with my usual MAAS  polish 
info (it's a lot milder than most metal polishes), can be used on  any metal, 
gems, glass and ceramics, other musical instruments...I first bought  it out in 
Ohio at a Buckeye fest to clean my silver jewelry and then tried it on  my 
Super 64 and it was just brilliant, even removing tarnish from under the  covers 
and the reedplates of older harps too when I went on a cleaning  binge:
...but since I'd have to add the disclaimer of: cleaning off any trace of  
the polish with rubbing alcohol and then wiping down one more time with a  
dampened clean white cloth while responding to an 8-year old  -  although I do 
believe it's really Joy writing for Josh (or should be, anyway -  no 8 year old 
should be handling potentially poisonous materials without adult  
supervision)...I decided to sit it out until Rob's post.  
While I'll still keep using my favourite works on plastics and  
acrylics too so I can even use it for my CX-12's (although they don't  tarnish 
externally my theory is it might help prevent drying out of the plastic  body 
since I'm a little harsh with my chroms, keeping them under a fairly strong  
light for too long)...Ken's idea of the toothpaste is probably the best way to  
go for a child to clean his/her harmonica without adult 
involvement/supervision,  although from the reading I've done it should be white toothpaste only  
(such as Colgate)...none with 'additives'.

I just just use toothpaste to polish cover  plates. Rub a tiny bit of 
toothpaste into the metal using your finger, wet an  old toothbrush and brush, rub in 
some more with moist paper towel and your  finger, finish with dry paper 
towel. Those plates will shine up like new and you  don't have to risk poisoning.
