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!)
I find cleaning and polishing the shiny parts so satisfying. The fittings look great after some Brasso.ReplyDelete
Nice! I've never tried this product. I use Mother's Mag & Aluminum Polish.ReplyDelete
It's a miracle what a little polishing can do!ReplyDelete
Brasso does the job. Congratulations on the new Royal. QDL?ReplyDelete
It doesn't half make it shine. (Even correct for the case, the Brasso - beacon of constancy in the sea of changing household labels - and it works too ;-)ReplyDelete
Tnx. It's a DL - shiny!
I used to make home made brasso for degreasing etching plates. Dilute ammonia with talc. It is the fine particles that do the gentle abrasion. In the UK, Brasso is a sort of staple though I use Autosol paste (great on aluminium) and a cotton wad based Duraglit. And you are of course right, nothing like a shine to put a smile on your face.ReplyDelete
