Default My badges are ugly

My SSEi badges are kinda, I dunno, corroded?
They are dull and kinda spotted.
Any ideas how I can get them looking nice again, or am I gonna hafta pay for new ones from a dealer?

If you mean that white chalky look around the inner edges, I just took some rubbing alcohol and a few other things (I forget what) along with some qtips to that. I guess a small brush would work well too. You can cycle through a few other house hold cleaners. There is definitely a great way to get the shine back on the badges I just forget exactly what I did but definitely used rubbing alcohol on it. Guess you can start with that and see if it helps

OK smartguys, ANSWER TONIGHT
POLISH cannot be pronounced correctly w/out a context.
Since it is written all in caps, there is no way to tell if it is meant to be "polish", or "Polish"
Trick question.
Ain't I a stinker?
