Since 1839, Goddard’s of Leicester have made various high quality cleaners and polishes. A much loved product they produced was Goddard’s Silver Dip. Just dip and rinse, easy and saved many a household staff hours of scrubbing his Lordship’s silverware. It was so good that it obtained a Royal Crest as a product used by Her Majesty herself (well, her staff anyway).

Now, sadly, Goddard’s was purchased by S.C Johnson, the Cleaning Company from across the pond that makes, among other things Mr Muscle, Glade and Pledge.  Even more sadly, for reasons unknown, S.C. Johnson have now discontinued Goddard’s Silver Dip.

Once stocks sell out, that’s it, one of the best products on the market for cleaning silverware and silver jewellery has gone the way of the Dodo.  A quick scan of Ebay is showing remaining bottles are selling for up to £9.95

There is a light at the end of the metaphorical tunnel though in the form of Tableau. They have produced a Silver Dip that is equally as good as, if not better than Goddard’s Silver Dip.


Tableau Silver Dip is 235ml of pure silver cleaning goodness, the sturdy plastic container is smaller and more stable than the fragile 265ml glass container of the Goddard’s Silver Dip and won’t break if it hits the floor.

So it is with a great sadness we bid a fond farewell to Goddard’s Silver Dip and give a warm hearty welcome to Tableau Silver Dip.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
