Brasso Metal Polish liquid is a multi-purpose metal polish that effectively cleans and polishes brass, copper, stainless steel, pewter, aluminium and chrome to an instant, sparkling shine.
Brasso is a well known metal polish made by Reckit and Colman it has been around for years.
It came about when a representative from this company visited Australia and found the liquid cleaner, he quickly realised that it was far better than the paste type that they were then manufacturing so he brought a sample back home with him and it eventually went onto the market in 1905.
It contains polishing powder, ammonium jelly and white spirit so it is highly flammable and should be kept away from a naked flame and of course well out of reach of children.
It comes in a tin with a bright red circle on displaying the words Brasso Metal Polish and has bold blue and white lines splaying off the red circle resembling a sun burst that is the only words that come to my mind it certainly stands out on a supermarket shelf.
The only time Reckit and Colman changed the tin was during the second world war in 1941 they had to use a glass bottle because of a shortage of metal.
Not alot of people have brass now but this cleaner is great for cleaning loads of different types of metals like copper, stainless steel, chrome, aluminium, pewter and bronze.
I personally use it mainly for the stainless steel in my kitchen but you must always make sure that you have removed any grease first to get the perfect shine.
It can also be used to remove scratches from glass and plastic but only very light scratches it certainly is not capable of getting a badly scratched table top back to prestige condition.
Always shake the tin well before using and apply a small amount of the liquid onto a soft cloth. The liquid is a light brown opaque colour and smells very strong of ammonia so it is best to use it in a well ventilated room.
It can make your hands quite dirty so I always wear a pair of light rubber gloves and if I am cleaning a few objects I always put a newspaper down first just in case.
Rub the metal in a circular motion and you will notice it looking quite black but when you buff it up with a dry soft cloth once the liquid has dried it will bring the metal up sparkling.
I bought my last tin of 1 ltr from a cash and carry for 8.50 about two years ago but I know that Wilkinson have 150ml tins for 1.49 at the moment.
Give this metal cleaner a go it really does work.
Stainless steel sinks, faucets, stove and refrigerator handles, cabinet pulls and even window locks can be cleaned and shined using Brasso. Brasso metal polish can also be used to polish cookware and decorative metals in the kitchen; it lifts off greasy film and leaves everything polished and shiny.
