"Cleaning/Shining Boat Brass and Bronze"



2005

I own a 1966 Grand Bank trawler. The outside hand rail stantions are made of brass. Over the years they have turned a dark color. Seemingly they are next to impossible for me to clean and shine. Is there a chemical that will stip the tranish off? I heard the muric acid with do the trick but have not atempted this.

Can anyone empathize and help?

Thanks,

If they won't respond to polishing with Brasso [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] or similar, then it is because they have a clear coating, and have tarnished under the coating. Remove the clear coat with paint stripper, polish, and recoat with clear.
