I found a GREAT replacement for Brasso and other costly brass polishes in an intensive web search which gave me everything from KoolAid to dirt...but this one I tried and it works (I would say better than Brasso; however I think that's just because I'm not having to use it sparingly!).
What you need:
That's IT! Dissolve a teaspoon of salt into 1/2 cup of vinegar and then add enough flour to make it into a paste. Smear it onto your brass...wait ten minutes...and wipe/polish off!
Remember to wait ONLY TEN MINUTES (lesson learned the hard way) because the flour/paste will harden and be a real pain to get off!
