Brass is one of the most renowned metals that is frequently used in musical instruments, cookware and in our jewellery. In case you have jewellery that has brass as its base metal, this means that they are also prone to tarnishing. However, do not worry since there are lots of ways to remove that tarnish. There are natural ways that utilise simple and organic compounds, and there is also cleaning solution that contains chemical ingredients. Cleaning your brass jewellery should not be a difficult task.
How Do You Clean Oxidised Brass Naturally
Personally, I prefer to do it naturally, when I was searching for ways on how do I clean brass jewellery using the natural method, here’s what I found out.
Soap and Warm Water
The use of warm water combined with soap is the traditional way of cleaning your brass jewellery. Mix a tiny amount of your dishwashing soap to the warm water and then use a brush with a soft bristle or your fingers to scrub the tarnished part of the brass jewellery. After you successfully eliminate the grimes in the brass, rinse it thoroughly. Allow the base metal to dry after. In case cleaning your brass jewellery with warm water does not work, there are other ways to do it.

Worcestershire and Ketchup
Worcestershire sauce and ketchup will not only add taste to our favourite meal, but it has also been proven effective against the grimes and tarnish in your brass jewellery. Similar to cleaning it with warm water, you should use a brush with a soft bristle or your finger to rib the sauce on your brass jewellery. After your jewellery is entirely covered with sauce, let it sit for at least a minute. Rinse the sauce residue. In case you are not contented with the result, cleaning your brass jewellery for the second time using these sauces will seal the deal.

Lemon juice contains a mild acid that can be powerful in cleaning your brass jewellery. Place at least one cup of water into a large container. Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice of the lemon and mix it directly with the water. Add one tsp. of salt and mix it until it is completely dissolved. Dip the brass jewellery into the mixture and observe it until it reaches your desired cleanliness.
The Salted Lemon Technique
In case you are still looking for an answer on ‘how do you clean oxidised brass naturally’, you should expose your brass jewellery directly on the lemon. Take the other half of the lemon and sprinkle it with a small portion of salt. Rub the brass jewellery directly on the lemon and immediately wash the brass jewellery.
Using the natural method of cleaning your brass jewellery is not only safe but also a cost-effective way to keep the pristine condition of your jewellery. It is the best alternative if you want to keep away from the harsh result of the chemical cleaning solution.
