"Is a brass bed affected by the humid weather conditions near the ocean?"
Hello. We recently nicely polished up an older brass bed of perhaps 25 years, and placed it in our beach home. Three weeks later the brass appeared to have become a muted copper and spotted terribly everywhere. Is a brass bed (solid brass, not plated) a poor choice for a beach home...or is there perhaps a product that will sustain a brass shine for a longer period of time than just 3 weeks? Thank you for your kindness in replying.Susan Cherpak

All metals except gold and a few other precious metals tarnish, Susan. Brass must be lacquered if you wish it to stay bright.
