Those old candlesticks you inherited could use a good cleaning, but is it necessary to reach for the synthetic commercial cleaner that may have toxic ingredients? No it's not.

There is a better way to clean brass.

Most commonly used kitchen cupboard or refrigerator ingredients that

contain a natural acid, such as vinegar, Tabasco Sauce, ketchup, tomatoes,

milk, and lemon or lime juice, will remove tarnish.

The tarnish washes away

with an acid rub or soak. You might have to remove the lacquer cover if the

brass is new.

Do this by submerging the brass in boiling water with a few

teaspoons each baking soda and washing soda (available in the laundry section

of the supermarket). Once the lacquer has peeled off, polish dry.

good luck.

Here is where you can order Brassmate. They did not list any brick and mortar stores that have it. However, you should be able to buy a product called Brasso at most stores like Walmart, Target, grocery stores, Walgreens, etc. Look in the aisle with cleaning products.

BrassMate can be purchased at www.silvermatecompany.com

For 60 years the SilverMate Company has primarily sold to Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, Country Clubs & Rental companies. Now SilverMate is making its commercial grade products available to the public via their website.

I would be weary of using household chemicals on your fine brass. They can leave spotting and the harsh abrasives can scratch the brass.

Happy Cleaning!
