Homemade Metal Cleanser and Polisher

To clean tarnished brass, copper and pewter, use a paste with equal parts of white vinegar and table salt. Make a metal cleanser by adding enough white vinegar and 2 Tbsp. of cream of tartar to make a paste. Rub it on and let dry on the surface. Wash off and dry with a soft cloth. You can polish brass and copper with a mixture of 2 Tbsp. ketchup and 1 Tbsp. white distilled vinegar. Rub it on with a clean cloth until dry and shiny.
