Cleaning brass with the non liquid Brasso
I am interested in cleaning a brass piece in our church. Its is quite intricately detailed. I as a young man in the Navy had the pleasure of cleaning the brass on the Quarterdeck. I used Brasso [affil link], but it was not the liquid. It was in a large round can, and seemed like a saturated cotton. I and the powers that were, were pleased with the results. Does anyone know where I can find this type of Brasso?Tom Sanford

There is a product out there called "Nevr-Dull [affil link]" manufactured by a George Basch Co. in Freeport, NY. Be sure the brass is stripped of any lacquer before polishing.Jake Koch

Sorry, Tom, that elusive product no longer exists because, according to Wikipedia, the volatile organic compounds that the formula demanded do not comply with new (2008) U.S. laws. You didn't know that the brightwork on your ship was what caused LA's smog? :-)
