I know that ketchup will clean copper. It may also work on brass--cheap enough to try!

There are some ideas on the links below. Proceed with caution if it is a valuable or sentimental piece. Possibly test in a small inconspicuous spot first.

Follow some of the links on the right side of this page, under Related Pages, there are many ideas to try. I used the Worchestershire sauce and a small paint brush to clean the bathroom sink handles. Worked pretty good. But what worked best is Amway's Metel Cleaner. I also tried Never Dull, worked fair. I believe the faucet /handles must have had a protective film, but has worn off. They tarnish very fast. We have to replace them soon. GG Vi

I make a paste of Barkeepers Friend and water. Apply to brass (or other non-precious metals) with a soft cloth. Let sit for a about 30 seconds, rinse with water, dry with a soft kitchen towel and then polish with another soft cloth. So far it hasn't damaged brass figurines and/or bathroom faucets and fixtures.
