There are lots of brass cleaners on the market. But they’re often expensive and you never know what kind of chemicals a store-bought polish contains. That’s why I like this site, which offers four different recipes for making polish and cleaner at home.

All are made from simple ingredients you already have in your kitchen. You’ll get recipes for three cleaners one with a vinegar base, one with lemon juice, and another with baking soda as the primary ingredient.

There’s also a simple two-ingredient brass polish. Plus, you’ll even get a recipe for cleaning small brass items in an ultrasonic cleaner, and more importantly, tips for keeping your brass from getting tarnished in the first place.
