Brass can be cleaned with 2 of 3 ingredients everyone has at home! First you can mix the juice of half of lemon with a teaspoon of baking soda, and then rub the paste all over the piece of brass. Rinse your piece, let dry and then rinse again. Or you can use half a lemon with teaspoon of salt on it, squeezing the juice as you scrub your item. Rinse, let dry and you are done!
- If you want to buff your brass try rubbing it gently with a clean dry cloth. I’m also told that you can shine brass with olive oil.
- Using the lemon as a scouring pad, begin to work it all around the piece, lightly squeezing the juice as you go. The slightly abrasive salt will begin to work away the tarnish.
- Continue to work the lemon all around the piece until it is clean. Rinse under warm water and you’re all set! Can you see yourself smiling in your reflection?
