If you own any lacquered brass vases, utensils or other items that have accumulated dirt, dust, grease or smudges, it's time to give those items a thorough cleaning. In just a few simple steps, your lacquered brass can be spotless.
Step 1 - Produce Your Cleaning Solution
Before carrying out the cleaning process, you will need to create a suitable brass cleaner. To produce a highly effective homemade cleaning solution for lacquered brass, simply combine 2 cups of warm water with ¼ cup mild liquid soap in a spray bottle. Next, shake the bottle until the solution starts to sud.
Step 2 - Clean Your Brass
Now that you've made your cleaning solution, spray it onto the item you wish to clean, then proceed to vigorously wipe the item with a nonabrasive washcloth. When performing this step, pay special to any smudged or stained areas. Upon removing all dirt, stains and smudges, give the cleaned item a thorough rinsing beneath a warm faucet, after which you must promptly dry it off with a nonabrasive washcloth in order to avoid the formation of water spots.
