Kiehl's White Eagle Shaving Cream has stained my Rhodium plated Gillette razor.  My shave was interrupted by an important call, and I left the razor dirty.  In the morning 
I noticed the staining on the top cap, which I have been unable to remove.  I emailed Kiehl's and they were not helpful.  It does not seem to stain chrome or nickel plating, just rhodium.  Here are the pictures.[Image: RimrORd.jpg][Image: QZ7geuW.jpg][Image: a7ysjSs.jpg][Image: m0k4Mj8.jpg]

Wow. That's a bummer! Have you tried using some Flix or Maas Polish? If not, give those a try and see if that helps. Good luck and hope you get it straightened out!

Wow that sucks. I've seen a whole display case of kiehls at the nex I was wondering about the product. Now this is just another reason not to buy another shaving cream

I had the same problem with my Fatip gun metal.  I forgot to clean my razor off after I shaved.  The next day when I was rinsing and drying it I noticed it was stained.  I gently gave it a polishing with Brasso and the stains came off pretty easily.

If you do try polishing, please let us know if it removed the stains.

Never Dull cleaner/polish wadding will probably remove it.

I have not used any of the aforementioned products but have used "Peek" brand metal polish with excellent results.  I'm in Canada but it should be easily available at any auto supply in your own area.  It's very mild as it can also be used on ceramics without marking.  You could also contact Chris at Razorplate.com for some advice on this issue.  Best of luck.

Thanks for the advice, gentlemen.  I tried Mrs. Wright's silver polish, but to no avail.  I think I need a buffing wheel, which I don't have.  Since the stain is sesame oil based, I wonder if putting it in a cold oven and heating it to 300F for an hour would cause the oil to evaporate, or peel the plating?  Does anyone have an idea?

Who did the rhodium plating for you? If you can, contact them and ask, if you can't try one of our listed vendors that do that kind of work.
