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
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.
