uzizuri artisan polishing brass

Since brass is a natural alloy, it will gradually loose luster over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be achieved with a quick polish.

To clean using ingredients you may already have at home, use Vinegar, Salt and Flour to make a cleaning paste. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt into one-half cup of vinegar, and add flour until the mixture becomes a paste. Rub onto the brass, leave for about 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water and buff dry.
