What most people don't know is that my concrete driveway finish was ground so smooth that I could lay tile on it if I wanted to. It's so smooth that when it's wet it's actually dangerously slippery.
I've almost broken my neck a few times.

What an incredible product. Very little effort in very little time. I taped over the logos with regular painter tape. $2 for a can that probably works even better than an actual cymbal cleaner. Very satisfied with the results! The lighting kind of changed after I washed the China so it looks better than it is.

I clean my cymbals in 2 steps .
First I apply a bar keepers friend paste and rub it in to the cymbal going along the lathing.after rinsing and drying off I apply a pad of never dull to polish it up. I e found that combo to work the best for me out of all the different methods I've tried.

I would use the manufacturer cleaner first. I've heard Bar Keeper's does the job if the first choice isn't available.
I own XS20's and when they were new, I only used Sabian cymbal polish. It is hard to find here now, so I switched to Music Nomad's cymbal polish, and it works great and is easy to use. Seems to be easy on logo's also.

Anyone put a coating on the cymbal after? I guess it takes the coating off of the cymbal and is susceptible to the moisture in the air. I can see a bit of an orange tint developing. The part where I taped the logos off is now brighter than what I actually cleaned.
