"Cleaning Ships lanterns (Brass)"



2000

I have some New England original brass ships lanterns and they cannot be easily cleaned. Is there an instant chemical cleaner. I am aware of Tarn-X [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] but it would take $200 to get enough to submerge them for cleaning. can anyone help?

You may try using brass polishing compounds like Brasso [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] etc. The are not all that expensive and do a fine job in cleaning brass articles . Thanks

Vinegar and salt solution will eat tarnish off of brass faster that most anything. Once tarnish is removed polish with SimiChrome [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] or Flitz [affil. link to info/product on Amazon]. You will like the results.
