Green polish sticks work better on S/S than white. White is only for "colouring" or the final OCD level of finish. Think of it as jewelers rouge for S/S.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
