I first started using Brasso when I went into the Army in the early 1960s. It was a great product and I've used it ever since then. Whgen I ran out recently I was able to find only the new plastic bottle and believed that was a nice improvement over the metal can. Well, it is - but the product inside is absolutely worthless... at least it is if you're used to "the real thing". Brasso is now a thick liquid cream that dries up rapidly so you use a lot more of it. It doesn't polish nearly as well as the original Brasso did. It's sad that Reckitt had to take a great product and Wreck It... at least they should have continued making the original "good" version. This is the 'New Coke' version of Brasso and I hope Reckitt suffers for degrading the product.
I am using Brasso to polish brass on an old boat. 8 oz used generously has polished 7 light fixtures. It takes A LOT of elbow grease but the fixtures were in terrible condition and never thought they would come out as good as they did. Even the pitted areas were able to be polished up. I would recommend this for any brass boat fixture.
Best product for cleaning brass but requires some elbow grease. I also tried soap and water, Scrubbing Bubbles, Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner, white vinegar and ammonia which didn't work. I have 2 huge, decorative, hammered brass vases that were severely tarnished. To cut down on the elbow grease and time involved, I used table ketchup with salt sprinkled on the rag, rinsed, dried, then a very thin coating of Brasso and polished. Amazing results with less elbow grease and time!
this product "Brasso" works great cleaning my brass lamps, discolored brass handles on bureaus and even doorknobs.
