Polishing medals?

Just hoping to get some good advice here!
My husband is ex-RAF, and has a medal from being in Afghanistan that is looking tarnished. His veterans' badge too.

Any military/wives/ex-military have a good way to make them all pretty again?

Would a silver/jewellery polishing cloth work? Silver dip?

Be careful - some chaps are funny about others polishing their bling !!!
Make sure you 'ask' first !! smile

My Iraq medal came with a care and maintenance slip of paper in the box, saying do not use brass or silver polish. Mine is tarnishing too. I don't know how to polish it.
