Brass is an alloy metal made primarily from Copper and Zinc. Brass has become very popular because of its beauty, strength, and its ability to hold up against extreme temperatures. Unfortunately, Brass and Copper tarnish easily due to a chemical reaction that occurs when oxygen comes in contact with sulfuric elements in the environment. Over time, Brass and Copper will darken and the beauty will diminish.
Who knew cleaning and polishing brass could be so easy? There are so many ways to do it safely and naturally without the use of harsh chemicals that usually strips away the top layer of the metal. The secret ingredient to all of these household brass cleaners is a weak acid. Below are 3 all natural ways to polish brass with household items.
Natural Ways To Polish Your 50 Cal Bottle Opener:
1.) Ketchup! Just smear some ketchup all over your dirty brass, let it sit for a few minutes, and wash it off. Rinse well and buff with a soft clean cloth.
2.) Worcestershire sauce! Same as with the ketchup: wipe it on, let it sit for a few minutes then wash it off, and voila! Just be sure to rinse it off really well and dry thoroughly.
3.) White vinegar and salt. Pour vinegar over your brass and then sprinkle it with salt. Wet a soft cloth with it and wipe down the brass. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
Ruck Gear has been using these methods for some time now and our 50 Cal Bottle Openers come out looking shiny and new every time.
