    I’ve never heard of the ketchup trick! My mom used to make me clean our brass and copper with her natural concoctions – probably vinegar and salt. But never ketchup!

      Ketchup works so well! It’s all about patience, actually. You need to let it sit for a while before you clean/buff it off.

      I try to avoid chemical cleaners in my house whenever I can. I was so thrilled to find that these solutions worked!

    I’m so glad you touched on how to update antique brass finds. They turned out beautiful! Thanks for sharing the wonderful advice! I never knew the ketchup trick but now that I do I cant wait to go thrifting for some new golden finds.

    These pieces are truly beautiful! Homemade cleaning blends are always preferable, especially when it comes to antiques. Using lemon pieces covered with salt for scrubbing is also an option. Yogurt is another interesting cleaner for brass.
