Now clean all brass objects in your home without buying expensive brass cleaners at the grocery store. Easy recipe to adjust to the amount you need.


  1. Measure salt and flour into a glass bowl.
  2. Add vinegar slowly to moisten and stir into a stiff paste. (Slightly more or less vinegar may be required depending on local humidity conditions.).
  3. You can always add more vinegar if the paste is too dry, but it is difficult to firm up a runny paste.

This worked very well for me with my copper pots. I don't use as much vinegar--I just make a paste. I think it cleans like magic.

This did nothing for my brass sink ( which drives me crazy, they are not a good thing) You do not say, when to add the I mixed it with the salt,than the vinegar.It might work on a brass object,this I did not try.
