How to Polish Brass – Method 2
This second method of polishing brass is one where you can use common household items in order to get your brass items looking as good as new.
What You Will Need:
- 1/2 a lemon
- a teaspoon or so of baking soda
- a small bowl
- Soft cloth
- Make a mixture of half a lemon and baking soda. Stir it together until it makes a lemony paste.
- Take your soft cloth (some people recommend using fingers as well; that depends on your preference) and apply the paste to the brass. Gently rub the paste in one direction for several minutes until you feel satisfied with how much elbow grease you’ve put into this round.
- Rinse off the paste and dry. At this point, you need to evaluate the shine. If it’s not shiny enough, then repeat steps 2 and 3 until it has the natural shine that you’re looking for.
- After you’ve established that you are finished, then rinse the brass thoroughly, making sure that there is no paste left in the crevices on the object.
- Dry it off, and you now have a shiny looking brass object, with little to no fuss or cost.
