The tried and true at home cleaner for brass is ketchup, as many people know.
Ketchup Brass Cleaner
-Rub ketchup onto brass.
-Remove with a wet cloth.
-Buff with a dry cloth.
But for a truly homemade cleaner, here's the recipe:
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp salt
Mix vinegar and salt.
Add flour a small spoonful at a time and mix. You just want enough to make a paste.
Rub paste onto brass. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Rinse or remove with wet washcloth.
Buff with a dry cloth.
Everyone has homemade cleaners they grew up using and maybe have forgotten about. Some people even use these cleaners all the time without realizing what frugal homemade geniuses they are! I'm always up for learning new things and would love to know: What are your favorite homemade cleaners?
