    rolite metal polish is used by professionals. Make sure any clear coat is removed before you use the polish.

    Use BRASSO for cleaning brass.

    Vinegar, Salt and Flour: These versatile home staples can be combined to make a paste to clean tarnished brass. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt into one-half cup of vinegar, and add flour until the mixture becomes a paste. Rub into the brass, leave for about 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water and buff dry.

    Or use a can of coke and wipe off with a soft cloth after rinsing.

    Thank you all!! If at first you don't succeed, try suggestion #2. Toothpaste worked well on deadbolt but either my arm strength left me or it needed more attention. Off I go with ketchup! Saving all the ideas!

    I use basso - problem it looks like the lacquer is partly but not all off. Yu may have to use a solvent to remove all the lacquer to make it look right.
