Brass is the alloy of copper and zinc, yellow color, used in the manufacture of jewelry and home decor items.
Before cleaning a brass lamp, first prepare the lamp to be cleaned and the working environment.
We advise you to choose a comfortable and functional workspace. The ideal is to opt for a table that you must protect with a tablecloth or a transparent canvas covered with newspaper.
To clean, you need a general purpose cleaner for metal, another for brass, a toothbrush, a sponge, two soft cloths (one for cleaning and one for drying). Remember to wear gloves to avoid the risk of allergy.
As a first step, apply the general purpose metal cleaner by moistening the sponge or cloth and applying the product on it while scrubbing the areas to be cleaned. Depending on the degree of dirt on the brass lamp, the friction may be more or less energetic. Rinse thoroughly with a damp sponge.
As a second step, apply the brass cleaner to make the lamp shiny.
First, apply the product on a soft, dry cloth and scrub all areas of brass. If some surfaces are difficult to access because of patterns or reliefs, use a toothbrush. How to do the first step, rinse the lamp with a damp, non-abrasive sponge and then dry the lamp with a soft cloth.
The third and final step is to clean the glass parts of the brass lamp. Therefore, use a soft, damp cloth with a glass cleaner tip and rub the glass parts well. Then take a soft, dry cloth to dry the lamp.
This is how your oriental brass lamp will become new and bright.
