Like all metals, brass may tarnish over time. Fortunately, there are simple (and super cheap) ways to correct this:

    • Using a cloth or toothbrush, go over the item with soapy, warm water.
    • If additional care is needed, rub a thin layer of ketchup (yes, ketchup!) or tomato paste on the product.
    • Let sit for about 15 seconds.
    • Rinse with hot, soapy water.
