What You Need
Follow These Three Easy Steps
Wearing rubber gloves, thoroughly wash your brass piece with a clean cloth and warm soapy water to remove any dust or dirt.
Use a toothbrush to get at grime in hard-to-reach places.
Tip: Unsure your piece is brass? If it is, magnets won’t stick to it.
Use a cloth to gently rub cleaner all over your brass item.
Using a clean, dry cloth, rub off any excess cleaner, then buff brass to a burnished finish. To avoid tarnishing the piece, don’t handle it with your bare hands until it’s completely dry.
