Have an overwhelming urge to clean my knocker that must be satisfied! grin but have no Brasso!! Is there anything else that will work?

All together now "Shine up your buttons with Brasso, its only 3 ha'pennies a tin. You can buy it or nick it from Woolies...."

No idea. Lemon juice rings a bell. I have a book somewhere with all this in but dd is screaching.

I have a screaching DD too, she is currently attached to my left leg like a little koala bear

My mum used to use cola, the cheapest brand. I seem to remember her using it to shine up jewellery too! Makes you wonder what it does to your insides! grin

Brown sauce will do it too.

Have no cola but do have brown sauce, you know I am going to get some strange looks from the neighbours

Brown sauce didn't work although the dog now seems to have taken a liking to the front door

Any silver polish will work, or if badly stained/discoloured vinegar will clean it, but do rinse off before buffing.

Try hob-brite. Works well on the brass edges of my coffee table.

Tomato ketchup works on brass

Toothpaste. Honestly. My CDT teacher told me this in about 1985 and he was absolutely right!

Also, paste of lemon juice and salt, but works best on copper.

Autosol is good.
