How to Clean Brass

Tarnished brass can take any otherwise lovely piece and make it look old and dingy. That's why it's important to always keep supplies around that will restore your brass to its original gleam. However, how you clean your metal depends on whether it's lacquered or not.

The best way to polish brass that's lacquered is to simply wipe it with a soft, damp cloth — do not use any kind of household cleaner. If it's non-lacquered, Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, recommends using Good Housekeeping Seal holder Weiman Brass Polish ($9, amazon.com).

If you're in a pinch, you can also try any of the following ideas that will also clean brass quite easily.

1. Ketchup
Squirt a dollop of ketchup on a rag and rub over the surface. Wipe off the residue with a damp cloth and buff dry.

2. Vinegar
Dissolve 1 teaspoon salt in 1/2 cup vinegar and add enough flour to make a paste. Rub onto the brass and leave for 10 minutes, then rinse and buff dry.

3. Lemon
Squeeze half of a lemon onto a sponge and sprinkle salt on top. Rub over the sponge over the surface and then rinse it off. The results are pretty amazing:

5 Materials You Shouldn't Use Fabric Softener On
Whether you use liquid fabric softener or dryer sheets, these products soften fibers to help reduce wrinkles, diminish static cling and add a bit of fragrance to your laundry. But using them on certain materials can actually have a negative effect on fibers. Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, says to read the care label before adding it to your rinse cycle — and think twice about using fabric softener on these five materials.

1. Microfiber
What's great about microfiber is that its intricate threads have the ability to trap dust and absorb spills. However, if you toss it in the wash with fabric softener, you could end up destroying their effectiveness.

2. Sportswear
Many types of athletic wear have wicking technology to absorb sweat from your skin and keep you cool when you're working out. If you use fabric softener on these garments, it'll leave a coating that will prevent them from well, wicking.

3. Towels
While everyone loves to dry off with a soft towel, liquid fabric softener and dryer sheets can reduce the absorbency of terry cloth and other fluffy fabrics. If you feel like your towels aren't drying as well as they did when they were new, skip the softener every few washes.

Vinegar, Salt and Flour: These versatile home staples can be combined to make a paste to clean tarnished brass. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt into one-half cup of vinegar, and add flour until the mixture becomes a paste. Rub into the brass, leave for about 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water and buff dry.
