Anyone Ever Try This?

I've heard that worchestershire sauce(spelled it right the first time )
is good for polishing brass. So anyone try it?

I'd try just plain vinegar first. All the oomph of Worcestershire sauce but without the sticky gunk.

And I don't know how well vinegar will work for polishing as it has no abrasive quality. For cleaning it might work... but polishing.. I don't think so.

i think the salt and sugar in the sauce would make it abrasive

yea, acidic sauce will tend to etch the surface leaving a nice bright brass surface, but the exposed metal surface will tend to oxidize/corrode rather quickly

as for polishing...yea maybe the salt and sugar will help...but I dont think it will do a good job at it

The salt and sugar are dissolved... it's not like they are just floating in the sauce in a crystalline form like table salt/sugar.

I honestly just use Mother's polish. It works great.

Brasso is great as long as you wipe the surface down afterward with a clean clothe to get the solution off. Otherwise it will re-oxidize fairly quickly with a nasty pattern and color.
