as we live opposite the docks, we do get alot of sea salts from there and the brass on my door got lime scale on it, its a dark colour and a rough feel like the gold had come off...im cleaning with Brasso.

it is too late to save them?? as i last cleaned them last year.

or best to get new ones?

thanks

New brass comes with a lacquer coating on. Once this has been destroyed by the elements it is much harder to get that original finish back.
