forget brasso use TWINKLE for brass

Posted by tullius on October 7th, 2000 12:31 PM

I have a huge collection of brass and have tried about
everything. Brasso is all rub scrub rub. Lemon nd
salt is a waste of time. But Twinkle (as in the
silver and copper polishes) makes one for brass.
It works great and doesn't have a solvent type of
gaggy odor. The secret is to wet the surface
with hot water, hotter the better. For something
big like your hall tree you'll need to get it in
the shower.

There is also a polishing cloth that works well, but
I don't have one at the moment and don't remember the
brand. It comes in a zip-lock bag appr. 5" X 9" and
is yellow with a white polishing cloth included.

For detailed pieces or really bad tarnish (when
it starts going greenish and pitting)I use a fine
car buffing paste. This works great for pieces that
are dulled from fine scratches. You can make brass
mirror-like if you start with coarse enough to remove
worst scratches and keep stepping down to finer ones.
Just like sanding wood.
