Removing Tarnish from Copper, Brass or Bronze


(2001)

I know that aluminum foil in a boiling vat of water, salt and baking soda [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] will, upon contact with silver, remove the tarnish from silver. Can something similar be done with tarnished copper or brass? -Can you use the same technique, but tin or zinc metal (in place of the aluminum foil) to remove tarnish from brass or copper?
