polishing cloth

Help! I have one more spoon to polish in the castle dining room and have lost the blue cloth. Can't find it anywhere in any other rooms and can't continue game without it. Any ideas?

I polished all the silver. My rag is gone. However it won't let me put the silver in the case. It keeps telling me I need to polish it.

Welcome to the pond, Headteach!

That happened to me too. The only way I saw around it was to exit the game. I went ahead and did the crtl, alt, delete to pull up the task manager and exit the game that way. I noticed when I bought the game after I started playing again it took me back to the beginning of the chapter I had been playing when the demo stopped. It did the same when I exited the game-I was right back at the beginning of chapter 9 when I restarted the game. I was able to polish all the silver this time-though the one spoon still looks gold. Hope this helps.

I'm in the same boat and the ctrl+alt+del didn't work for me. Was really enjoying the game on a nice relaxing day and then this! Maybe I'll give it a few days and restart a new profile.

Thanks for the welcome and the help satexasgirl. Have been with BF for 2 years and never used forums before - will do more now if needed. Tried ctrl alt del but unfortunately I'd already saved the game so didn't work. Suppose I'll have to start the whole game again - such a shame so near the end of it. Glad in a way I'm not the only one with this problem. Half way through polishing I left to get a reminder of the box code and came back to finish. I'll stay with it next time. Perhaps there is a glitch in the game if others are finding this too?

Same problem. Cloth has disappeared, and can't move on. Definitely a glitch in the game. Come on BFG fix the problem.

I too have polished all the silver and the cloth has vanished yet it says I still need to polish two pieces of the silver. *sighs*

I have the same issue. I have the one spoon left, the large one that goes at the bottom of the case. It says I need to polish it before I put it in the case. I was even careful to make sure I polished all of them when i had the cloth to no avail.

I have two spoons to go and I know I polished them. I'll try going back in and see if it helps.

I got out of the game and it started me at chapter 9. Once I got the code for opening the silver chest I did not leave and made sure I had all the silverware first on cloth before polishing. I was able to complete the scene

I'm in the same spot! I have one spoon that it says is not polished and the cloth is gone.

I'll try ctrl alt del, but if that doesn't work... I so do not want to play it over again!

eta: Nope, didn't work. I'm done with this.

I had that problem too. I had to completley start over . When I did that, the all the silver got polished and I was able to finish the game. I did a new profile.

Let me jump on the band wagon- I uninstalled the game reinstalled it and it brought me right back to where I ended up- no polishing cloth and I still have to polish the silver I already polished. Please correct this error BF i have never been this frustrated with such a simple game.

My cloth has disappeared too. Very frustrating.

Same here...started over with a new profile and the same thing happened again. Can't finish the game without it. It is frustrating.

I found that all my pieces did not go on the polishing pad and I had to do the spoons and fork (I think) first, put them away and then add one spoon and the large fork from the inventory, polish and put them away. One spoon remained unpolished but once all were in the box, I moved on. The cloth had vanished as soon as I did the large fork.....
