Default Scratched paper punches - look new?

Many of my paper punches by Stampin Up look quite used - they have lost the shine on the silver part on top. I did not store them properly over the years. Does anyone have tips on what I can do or try to help them look shiny again and less worn? Thanks for any advice!

I can't help you get them looking shiny and new.
I punch out the design and glue it to the top of the punch over the picture on the punch.
Happy Stampin'!

It might help to think of them as tools - they don't need to look pristine in order to work effectively!

Try making a paste of baking soda and water and cleaning them with that. I use that to clean my silver jewelry and they come out beautiful every time.

Have you thought of making a small stencil for each one & painting the image back on?

I would use a silver Sharpie marker and draw it back on and then color it back in with the Sharpie.
