directions

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

    I have an old ship's bell, I hoped was brass, from my grandfather that was heavily tarnished. To clean all of the parts I made 6 cups of the recipe. I turned the bell upside down spread the paste all over the inside and then submerged the outer part into a bowl so all the parts and the entire bell was covered. Then I wrapped in in cling wrap. Left it for two days. When I peeled off the paste, I thought I had a copper bell. With a fine grade sanding block, I revealed a glimmer of brass. I took the paste I had just removed (added a little more vinegar), And reapplied the paste. The next day 95% of the tarnish was off. Again, using the sanding block and a 0000 piece of steel wool the bell is absolutely beautiful. If I had used the commercial products, I'd still be working on the project. Thanks

    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 flour.so I mixed it with the salt,than the vinegar.It might work on a brass object,this I did not try.
