You need not to worry, because below is the step by step procedure for doing the brassware cleaning yourself. It is not only easy but also non-toxic, thus making your work fun and safe. You only need baking soda and vinegar (or lemon juice) and a soft rug to do the trick.

Easy Steps For Brassware Cleaning

First step. Mix the baking soda and vinegar (or lemon juice) in a bowl until you produce a paste. Do not worry about the bubbling as it is a normal reaction between the two ingredients.

Second step. Apply the paste into the brassware you are about to clean. Rub the paste as you apply it. Cover the entire brassware with it.

Third step. Wait for a few minutes before wiping it off. About five minutes is all it takes for the paste to do its job.

Fourth step. Using the soft rug, rub your brassware with it. Avoid using brushes for they will scratch your brassware. Apply extra pressure on the heavily tarnished part of the object.
