Best Cleaner for Brass and Many Other Things

Summer means yard sale season and lots of dusty, vintage, tarnished treasures. Check out the best metal cleaner I've found.
Tarnished, neglected brass planter
I've used Bar Keepers Friend for many years and LOVE the results I get when using it on brass, copper, fiberglass, and especially my white porcelain sinks. Doesn't take a lot of elbow grease, just a thorough washing with the cleanser and a rag.

I did use an old toothbrush to get around all the small detail areas.

      Marion, I get mine at my grocery store, Kroger. I think they carry it at Walmart too. It's located in the cleaning aisle near cleansers like Softscrub and Comet. Hope that helps!
