Only a few items of brass decor in a room are needed to draw attention to themselves due to the color and sheen they exude. And if you’re going to grab some old brass, you should probably clean it beforehand. However, you may avoid running out to get specialized brass polish because of this simple method. You most likely have a fantastic brass cleaner stashed away somewhere in your cupboards.
The softness of brass makes it susceptible to scratches. Always use a soft cloth, like a piece of cotton flannel or an old t-shirt, while cleaning brass. Scrubbing with a metal scouring pad or an abrasive sponge will leave scratches in the brass.
A mixture made from lemon juice and cream of tartar will remove even the most persistent tarnish. Apply the paste to the brass with a clean, soft cloth or a pastry brush. After 10-20 minutes, rinse the brass with warm water to remove any residue. Once the piece is dry, buff it with a soft cloth.
