Brasso Polish Review: Started Using In Military And Haven't Stopped Since
Tom shared his Brasso polish review.
This is the brass cleaner that I have used for many years.
I started using it when I was in the military to polish the shoulder insignias on my dress uniform. I use it now in my home to clean and polish the brass door handles.
It is very effective and it is the product that I know.
What I do is coat the item to be shined with the polish. I will do small circles with a rag as I apply it to the item.
I generally like to use and old white tee shirt so I can observe how much dirt and build up is coming off. The white tee shirt will turn black in the area I am scrubbing with.
I then allow it to dry before wiping it off.
The door handle or the insignia will be shiny once all the polish is wiped off.
Brasso can be found in most grocery stores in the cleaning aisle.
Thanks Tom for sharing your review of this product.
As you can see I've got some additional reviews of it below, but I'm always looking for more! I would love if even more readers shared their tips for cleaning brass here, or shared their reviews for various cleaning and polishing products for this metal.
Brasso Metal Polish Can Be Used For Several Metals, Not Just Brass
I first encountered Brasso in Marine Corps Boot Camp in 1961, using it to clean brass belt buckles. It was the only brass cleaner available in the PX.
After getting out of the Marine Corps I discovered that it also worked well to clean chrome car bumpers and wheels.
Because this product worked so well, I kept it around the house for cleaning various metals.
My wife inheirited a set of Faberwear copper bottom pots and pans which had been used on a gas range. The bottoms were burned black. It was a challenge, but, Brasso cleaned them well.
The main drawbacks for using this product is its odor and the physical labor involved. It is ammonia based, and I don't like the odor of ammonia.
It also requires a considerable amount of rubbing.
I found that attaching a buffing wheel to my cordless drill reduces the rubbing time a great deal. The buffing wheel on the drill and this metal polish combined produces a high shine in very little time.
Thanks so much for sharing how you've used this product for cleaning and polishing other metals.
Finally, I would love to receive even more reviews of this metal polish, so if you've used it for any reason please share your experiences with me here. You can also share your reviews of any other brass polish or cleaner you may have used, or read other reviews which have already been submitted.
