Default Aluminum Jelly on Buttons

I watched a few Youtube videos the other day about cleaning gilted buttons using aluminum jelly. The results in the videos weren't all that noticeable but I figured I'd give it a try myself. My results were really surprising. All I did was dry clean them using the aluminum jelly and a toothbrush then occasionally wash them with soap and water. I would only rub for 10-15 seconds before cleaning and neutralizing the aluminum jelly. These are the results after drying them.
