Started cleaning of a newly arrived small black case. The clasps had a brown hue and the rest of the fittings were a dull grey. Amazing how the power of Brasso can bring it back - must have been very shiny when new with all that chrome, flashy even.
Right side now given a first polish, left side as it was. Very versatile and useful item; Brasso!
(And from the case it may already be clear to many what the newly acquired item now being polished and fixed-up is. Comes with a promise of a 14% better chance for success!)
