How to Make Brasso


Brasso is a metal polish that originated in the early 1900s. Available today in a paste or impregnated into wadding, Brasso is used to clean a variety of metals and in particular brass. An alternative to purchasing Brasso is to make a homemade version of the cleaner with common kitchen ingredients. The homemade brass cleaner is effective, less expensive and safer for the environment than the commercially produced Brasso.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 pint white vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. table salt
  • Spray bottle
  • Rag
  • Pour 1 pint of white vinegar into a spray bottle.

  • Add 3 Tbsp. of table salt to the vinegar in the spray bottle.

  • Place the top on the spray bottle and shake vigorously to mix the ingredients.

  • Spray brass letters, numbers, pots or other objects with the homemade Brasso cleaner.

  • Allow the spray to sit on the brass object for several minutes. Wipe the tarnish away from the brass with a rag.
