Taking care of your brass objects and accessories is simple, and you may already have the necessary products.
Things You'll Need
- Brass Polishes
- Polishing Cloths
- Worcestershire Sauces
- Copper Polishes
Dust brass and copper regularly.
Wash in warm, soapy water; rinse and dry.
Use a commercial brass or copper cleaner as directed. A combination of toothpaste and Worcestershire sauce also works, although it is not as powerful as a commercial cleaner.
Apply with a soft cloth, wipe off, and buff with a clean, dry cloth.
Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.
