Medals.

Just thought I’d ask a question with regards to cleaning medals. I’ve had a skeg on google etc. Plus, I can’t seem to get the search function o work.
Mine haven’t seen daylight for a few years, but I will be wearing them for remembrance. I have tried most things, brasso etc but it doesn’t seem to get rid of a couple of black marks on two of them. (Even tried banana skins and an eraser, which was recommended).
Any ideas or even a link to something tried and tested would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

edited to add I wasn’t sure where to post this, so I thought Lils.

It's strange isn't it?
Medals are not a new thing and there are millions out there, yet in all these years it would seem that no manufacturer has spotted a gap in the market for a specific cleaning product that won't damage them.

Dragons' Den beckons for someone I reckon...
