Save money and toxic nastiness when cleaning metals!
I have always used the leftover taco sauce or ketchup packets to clean brass. It is the perfect acidity to clean them without using any chemicals. After you have cleaned them with the sauces just use a mild dish detergent and clean them off. Ready to be buffed to a nice shine! http://thethriftygroove.blogspot.com/2013/02/thrifty-things-friday-97.html

What a fabulous idea! Never thought of the acidity in them. Unfortunately, I don't have baggies of them in MY fridge, but I can certainly "borrow" my husbands ketchup! Thank you!
