How to Clean Brass Bathroom Fixturesby HomeRepairExpert.com
Clean brass bathroom fixtures with a vinegar paste.
Things You'll Need
- Dish soap
- Small bowl
- Soft cloths
- Half of a lemon
Step 1Dampen a sponge and add a squirt of dish soap to perform routine cleanings on brass bathroom fixtures. Rub the sponge over the fixtures, removing dirt and soap residues. Rinse the brass fixtures with clear water and buff dry with a soft cloth.
Step 2Remove soap scum from brass bathroom fixtures with a homemade paste. Add a 1 part flour and 1 part salt to a ¼ cup of vinegar. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir to create a paste.
Step 3Rub the vinegar paste into the brass using a soft cloth. Do not dampen the cloth before applying the paste. Continue rubbing until the soap scum disappears and the brass fixtures buff to a brilliant shine.
Step 4Clean your brass bathroom fixtures with half of a lemon when you are in a pinch. Simply cut a lemon in half and sprinkle a pinch of salt on top. Rub the lemon over the brass, followed by a light buffing with a soft cloth to make the brass shine.
Step 5Squirt a dime-sized amount of ketchup onto a soft cloth. Rub the cloth over the brass bathroom fixtures to clean the brass and remove tarnish. Flip the soft cloth over to its clean side and buff the brass.
Tips and Warnings
- Brass bathroom fixtures that have finishes permanently damaged by neglect can be restored using a professional metal polisher. A professional polisher can colorize, polish and buff the brass, making it look good as new.
