Tartaric Acid to Clean Brass, Silver, and Copper

To clean brass, silver, and copper, mix 1 teaspoon tartaric acid with 5 pints of warm water and a few drops of dish soap. Stir till tartaric acid dissolves. Use plastic gloves to protect your hands. Immerse items 2-5 minutes. Tartaric acid can be found in the spice department of grocery stores or you may have some in your own cupboard!

Is tartaric acid the same as cream of tartar? I've never seen tartaric acid in the spice dept of my grocery store.

I am thinking the same thing SavingGrace. I googled it and it said a form of it is cream of tartar but I don't know if you could use it as Duckie-do said.
