I would not use the cloth that people use to clean silver, We got parades going on and I had to bull boots.

thankfully there is a military surplus store where we are and they sell silvette cloath.

dont use the jewellery stuff it leaves a dull bull!

I went to a jewellers and bought one then found exactly the same cloth in Tesco for half the price and the jewellers don't give clubcard points!

Tesco's is the place!

I find them a little harsh as a cloth, they can scratch your boots, would suggest putting them through the washing machine a couple of times first..

But really they are no better than a yellow cloth

Whats wrong with a yellow duster?
In the past yellow dusters were a good enough quality (thicker nap) to be a decent bulling diddly but as with supermarket bags, they got thinner & cheaper. A well broken in silvette (selvyt) can achieve a deeper shine by reducing the micro scratches in the surface of your boot.

I've used both yellow duster and Silvet in the past. For me you can't beat cotton wool balls dunked on cold water then squeezed dry. Brilliant shine and no scratches, as long as you don't drop them.
I agree but I use it as a finishing method as pasted below from my guide.
Water bobbing.

Equipment is cotton wool balls and cold running water.
Take your boots/shoes into the bathroom and use a sink.
Run the cold water and put a cotton wool ball under it.
Rub the wool ball on your boots/shoes in a circle and a shinier finish will start to appear. Keep rinsing and changing cotton as it will pick up polish flakes that will scratch your boots/shoes.
When you are happy with the finish make sure you remove all water from your boots/shoes as it dries and leaves white marks if you don’t.
You can if you wish bob over this finish with your diddley and try an even deeper shine.
