Brass Handicraft Maintenance

  • Brass craft items should not be cleaned with an ammonia based cleaner, as this causes tarnishing. They should be cleaned with a gentle soap and warm water and wiped with a soft dry cloth.
  • If the brass handicraft tarnishes despite having refrained from using ammonia based cleaners, it is possibly steel plated. Confirm with the help of a magnet. If the magnet sticks, it confirms the presence of iron. The tarnish is then most probably rust. This is to be cleaned with steel wool.
  • A brass cleaner can also be used for cleaning brass craft items. 
  • Thereafter, the object must be sprayed with clear laquer paint.
